SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In 2012, n4a and NASUAD were awarded grants from ACL to build the business capacity of state and community-based aging and disability organizations for managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS). This one-year of grant funding, through continuation grant, will continue to support n4a and NASUAD in their efforts to:

  • Identify and track emerging trends, best practices, barriers, lessons learned and progress in the aging and disability networks' integration into MLTSS and delivery system reform;
  • increase state and community-based aging and disability organizations' capacity, readiness and involvement in the provision of MLTSS through the provision of broad-based and targeted technical assistance, education and training; and
  • develop products that complement and enhance the first two areas of focus.

This program is authorized under the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended in 2006, Public Law 109-365.
