Please join us for the virtual kick-off meeting of the new RAISE Family Caregiving Advisory Council and the Advisory Council to Support Grandparents Raising Grandchildren.
The centerpiece of the joint meeting will be the introduction and swearing-in of new council members as they start their three-year terms. You’ll also hear from federal leaders and partners about the way forward for the work of the councils, a preview of the next joint advisory council meeting (September 19, 2023), and more.
Registration is not required to attend. The public meeting access link will be operational (live) 5 minutes prior to the meeting start time. ASL and closed captioning will be available during the meeting.
All information for this meeting, including an agenda, will be posted on the RAISE and SGRG webpages in advance of the meeting. Contact RAISE.email@example.com with any questions.
The RAISE Family Caregiving Advisory Council — established by the Recognize, Assist, Include, Support, and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act — is charged with providing recommendations on effective models of family caregiving and support to family caregivers as well as improving coordination across federal government programs.
The Advisory Council to Support Grandparents Raising Grandchildren is charged with identifying, promoting, coordinating, and disseminating to the public information, resources, and the best practices available to help grandparents and other older relatives both meet the needs of the children in their care; and maintain their own physical and mental health and emotional well-being.
The councils collaborate to increase their impact. Together, they developed the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers, a first-of-its-kind collection of recommendations and actions to build a system that ensures family caregivers have the resources they need to maintain their health, well-being, and financial security.
