Tribal Long Term Services and Supports Resource Center

Grant Opportunities

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) is proposing to aware a new cooperative agreement to find a National Resource Center of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS). This center will address the unmet need of Tribal-specific and culturally appropriate LTSS information and guidance to Tribes.

The outcomes of this project will be to:

  1. Create a network of navigators that will assist Tribes in development of appropriate LTSS in response to identified, tribally-specific needs; and
  2. Based on documented best practices, the Center will develop a practical and hands-on toolkit for Tribes to assist in implementing LTSS in their individual Tribal communities.

The Resource Center will target its services to the 270 tribes that receive Title VI grants, however it will also have publicly-available resources that are accessible to all Tribes and organizations that work with the AI/AN and Hawaiian populations. The Resource Center will focus on improving the lives of those served by ACL by supporting the development of Tribal-specific LTSS that assist older adults and people with disabilities while also empowering tribes to develop programs that are integrated into their unique culture.
