Supported Decision Making Across the Lifespan Planning Grant

The Administration on Aging (AoA) and the Administration on Disabilities (AoD) are collaborating to support the planning of future state-based collaborative projects to make progress in strategies and facilitate decisional supports for all adults.

The plans will be developed with consensus from

inclusive representational groups of disability and aging communities, and other key stakeholders.

This would include, but not be limited to, Supported Decision Making (SDM) as a specific way of supporting decisions, and would require looking across other mechanisms to strengthening decisional capacity.

Through this funding opportunity announcement, three (3) to five (5) state planning grants will be awarded at a federal share of approximately $50,000 to $75,000 each.

At the end of the planning year, the planning year, grantees will produce a written document with the following five components:
An existing or newly formed coalition with signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) to develop a State coalition action plan that advances a full range of strategies to supporting decision making across the age spectrum.

The MOUs should describe how the entities participated in the development of the application and how they plan to work together to ensure the goals and objectives included in the application are achieved.

At a minimum, the partnership must include:
A representative from the state Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS) group, or other similar community network, or identify and recruit a State coalition that includes a WINGS representative, Person with an intellectual or developmental disability A representative from the State office of public guardianship representative (if State has one) and/or Bar Association Elder Law Section and Disability Law Section, A representative from the judicial system, A representative from the Legislative branch A Comprehensive plan that includes:
