USAging will expand and enhance the capacity of the Aging Network to support family caregivers with funding it has received from the U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL). Building upon the roadmap established by the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers, the four-year cooperative agreement will enable USAging to launch the Innovations in Family Caregiver Services and Supports Initiative. With the Innovations in Family Caregiver Services and Supports Initiative, USAging will build on its members’ expertise, as well as the expertise of partners and stakeholders, to promote innovative services and supports for family caregivers of older adults, people with disabilities, as well as those providing care in kinship families and grandfamilies.

The ARCH National Respite Network is pleased to announce its partnership with USAging in the Innovations in Family Caregiver Services and Supports Initiative. Additional partners include ADvancing States, the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving, the Family Caregiver Alliance, the National Alliance for Caregiving, the National Association of Nutrition and Aging Services Programs, Generations United, and the Jewish Federations of North America, as well as a range of advisors who will offer training and technical assistance support across the Aging Network.
