Grant Description
Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, government and Tribal agencies, faith-based organizations, hospitals, and IHEs for programs that benefit older adults and their caregivers, particularly among diverse populations. Applicants are advised that required registraitons may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for new or expanded training activities and technical assistance programs for the aging services network; for providers serving diverse communities and populations; and for diverse older adults and family caregivers themselves.

There are two options under this NOFO. Recipients under both must collaborate with each other, ACL-funded resource centers, and stakeholders.

  • Option A. Older Adults Equity Collaborative: Technical Assistance & Resource Center (OAEC-TARC) Program. The purpose is to create a technical assistance and resource center that supports older adults and the service networks they turn to for help. You must select only one of these target populations: African American; Hispanic; Asian and Pacific Islander; Native American; or LGBTQ seniors and their respective family caregivers. Applicants should show how they will bring a broad, effective approach both to supporting the aging services network and to providing direct support to older adults and their family caregivers.
  • Option B. Older Adult Equity Collaborative (OAEC) Coordinating Center for Technical Assistance (CCTA). The purpose is to promote greater alignment, collaboration, and coordination across the five resource centers funded under Option A; other ACL-funded resources centers focused on older adults, family caregivers and, where relevant, persons with disabilities; and other stakeholders and entities to promote greater crosscutting work on behalf of diverse older adults and their family caregivers.

Under both options, applicants must show the capacity to work nationally.

For additional information about Option A, including recommended activities and use of funds, see p. 6 of the FOA in Attached Files.

For additional information about Option B, including recommended activities and use of funds, see p. 8 of the FOA in Attached Files.
