Description

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) is offering a federal grant opportunity titled "Advancing State Implementation of the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers." This cooperative agreement aims to implement the demonstration authority in Section 373(i) of the Older Americans Act of 1965. The grant seeks to support state governments in implementing the principles, recommendations, and actions outlined in the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers.

The grant recipients will be expected to develop cross-agency partnerships at the state level to address the goals, recommendations, and actions of the Strategy on a statewide basis. The initial three months of the project will be dedicated to planning and coordination with project partners. Grantees must then submit a sustainability plan outlining how project activities and accomplishments will be maintained beyond the period of federal funding.

The ACL anticipates awarding four grants under this opportunity, with an estimated total program funding of $1,960,000. The award ceiling is set at $490,000, while the award floor is $450,000. State Units on Aging authorized to administer funds under Title III-E/Section 373(a) of the Older Americans Act of 1965 are eligible to apply.
