ADMINISTRATION FOR COMMUNITY LIVING: Funding Opportunity: Lifespan Respite Care Programs
Lifespan Respite Care Programs: Projects to Strengthen Program Development, Implementation, and Sustainability
ACL's Administration on Aging has announced a grant opportunity for special projects authorized by the Lifespan Respite Care Act of 2006. Lifespan Respite Care programs are coordinated systems of accessible, community-based respite care services for family caregivers of children and adults of all ages.
The special projects funded by this cooperative agreement will complement the work of the Lifespan Respite Technical Assistance and Resource Center. Projects will focus on strengthening:
- Respite workforce recruitment, training, and retention
- State-based frameworks for respite system planning and development
- Caregivers and family natural support systems
Optionally, projects may also address other areas of capacity building to improve state-based respite, as identified by applicants and their partners.
