New Report on National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) Outcome Evaluation

December 6, 2018

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) recently completed a two part evaluation of the Older Americans Act Title III-E National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP). The newest report, Outcome Evaluation of the National Family Caregiver Support Program, is now available.

The NFCSP Outcome Evaluation focused on the following questions:

  • What types of organizational structures and/or approaches for NFCSP services are associated with the best participant-level outcomes?
  • Are services reaching the groups targeted by the Older Americans Act (OAA), including caregivers serving older adults with greatest social or economic need?
  • To what extent do NFCSP participants also receive other home- and community-based long-term support and services?
  • To what extent do NFCSP caregivers’ outcomes differ from those of caregivers who do not receive support and services from the NFCSP?

The two-part NFCSP evaluation includes a final process evaluation report, as well as examples of assessment tools collected from State Units in Aging:
