Alzheimer’s Disease Programs Initiative (ADPI) Funding Opportunity

May 22, 2018

ACL recently announced the Alzheimer’s Disease Programs Initiative (ADPI) funding opportunity. This funding will support and promote the development and expansion of dementia-capable home and community-based service (HCBS) systems in both states and communities.

There are two application options contained in the single funding opportunity.  The first is Option A, grants to states.  The second is Option B, grants to communities. The dementia-capable systems resulting from program activities under either option are expected to provide quality, person-centered services and supports that help individuals remain independent and safe in their communities.

All successful applicants will have significant direct service components, include implementation of evidence-based or evidence informed interventions, and robust evaluations.

ACL has $20,400,542 available for cooperative agreements under the ADPI.

There will be approximately twenty-two cooperative agreements to state and community entities for 36-month project periods.

There will be an informational call for states, as well as one for community-based organizations.
