SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Alzheimer's Disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP) is authorized through Sections 398, 399 and 399A of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended by Public Law 101-557 Home Health Care and Alzheimer's Disease Amendments of 1990. The ADSSP helps state efforts to expand the availability of community-level supportive services for persons with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers, including underserved populations. ADI-SSS projects are financed solely by Prevention and Public Health Funds. Similar in scope to ADSSP, ADI-SSS projects are designed to fill gaps in dementia-capable home and community based services (HCBS) for persons living with or those at high risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) and their caregivers by providing quality, person-centered services that help them remain Start Printed Page 57592independent and safe in their communities.

In compliance with the PHS Act, ACL revised an ADSSP Data Reporting Tool (ADSSP-DRT) in 2013. The 2016 revised Alzheimer's and Dementia Program Data Reporting Tool (ADP-DRT) collects information about the delivery of direct services by ADSSP and ADI-SSS grantees, as well as basic demographic information about service recipients. The 2016 version includes revisions to the approved 2013 version. The revised version would be in effect beginning 12/31/2016 and thereafter.

The proposed ADP-DRT can be found on AoA's Web site at: http://nadrc.acl.gov/​sites/​default/​files/​uploads/​docs/​2016%20Proposed%20OMB%20Alzheimer%20Program%20Reporting%20Tool.xlsx.
