New ACL Funding Opportunity for Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative – Specialized Supportive Services (ADI-SSS) Program
The Administration for Community Living's Administration on Aging announces the release of a new funding opportunity for our Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative – Specialized Supportive Services (ADI-SSS) program. The program is designed to expand existing dementia capability in home and community-based service provision organizations.
Successful applicants will include activities identified by the National Alzheimer’s Project Act Advisory Committee that address three specific dementia service gaps in support of people living with or at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia (ADRD) and their caregivers.
The required targeted service gaps are services for individuals living alone in their community with ADRD, improved services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities with ADRD or those at high risk of developing ADRD and the delivery of behavioral symptom management training and expert consultations for family caregivers.
All successful applications will include the implementation of at least one evidence-based or evidence informed intervention designed to support individuals with ADRD and/or their caregivers.
These grant opportunities close on April 7, 2018.
