The Administration for Community Living (ACL) will provide funding to support a Tribal Long Term Services and Support (LTSS) Resource Center to expand home and community-based supports (HCBS) to enable tribal elders to remain in their homes and/or communities. The program has been developed through consultations with tribes and tribal elders to respond to their demands for increased tribal access to expanded, culturally sensitive, person-centered home and community-based supports.

The Resource Center will:

  • Create a network of navigators through recruitment and training that will assist tribes in the development of appropriate LTSS in response to identified, tribe-specific needs
  • Develop a practical and hands on toolkit for tribes to assist in implementing LTSS in their individual tribal communities
  • Further target services to the 290 tribes that receive Title VI grants under the OAIANNHP
  • Have publicly-available resources that are accessible to all tribes and organizations that work with American Indian, Alaskan Native, and Hawaiian populations
  • 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
