ACL Announces New Funding to Improve Support for Family Caregivers

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) has announced $20 million in new funding for their first major initiative in support of the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers.

ACL will award five cooperative agreements for projects to foster advancements in two programs authorized by the Older Americans Act — the National Family Caregiver Support Program and the Native American Caregiver Support program.

Each project will receive up to $1.1 million annually for four years to develop, test, and disseminate new approaches to supporting family caregivers. Using the caregiver strategy as a roadmap, and with technical assistance from ACL, each project will focus on one of the five priority areas of the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers:

  • Improved awareness of and outreach to family caregivers
  • Inclusion of family caregivers in the care team
  • Services and supports for family caregivers
  • Financial and employment protections
  • Data, research, and best practices

The initiative is in keeping with President Biden’s Executive Order on Increasing Access to High-Quality Care and Supporting Caregivers, signed April 18, 2023. Applications are due June 26.
