The Aging Network reaches into every community in the nation, playing a vital role in strategic planning, program development and administration, and service delivery.
To ensure that older Americans have access to the highest quality long term supports and services the Aging Network must enhance
program design and service delivery in key priority areas.
The successful applicant for this Funding Opportunity will seek to put a process in place that improves the Aging Networks understanding of the activities, including innovations and best practices, of Older Americans Act (OAA) Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) and American Indian, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian (Tribal Organizations) Networks.
This will assist in understanding the capacity of these Networks to meet the current and future needs of a growing older population and their family caregivers and will serve as a foundation for future training and technical assistance designed to further advance the capacity of the Aging Network.
Through this announcement, the AoA is looking to fund a project with the primary objective of assisting the Aging Network in understanding how they are doing in key programmatic areas related to systems change.
The successful applicant will seek to capture Network progress in key programmatic priorities in health and long term care so as to gain an understanding of the future direction of training and technical assistance for the Network.
