The California Local Aging and Disability Action Planning (LADAP) Grant provides funding to communities in California to plan and develop local age and disability-friendly action plans. Plans should work to improve a community's livability and address the current, emerging, and future needs of California's older adults, people with disabilities, and caregivers through cross-sector collaboration and transformational systems change.

Program goals:

  • Improve community livability for people of all ages and abilities centered on equity, cultural competency, community engagement, and disability inclusion principles and practices
  • Combat racism, ageism, ableism, and biases in aging and disability systems of care
  • Address health and other inequities that can become cumulative with age
  • Elevate the strengths and voices of community members who are aging and/or living with a disability
  • Communicate a clear vision and strategic priorities for building and sustaining an age- and disability-friendly community
  • Strengthen the collective capacity of the community to address the current, emerging, and future aging and disability-related needs through cross-sector collaboration, defined as the intentional collaboration between two or more sectors to accomplish community goals and achieve community-level outcomes
  • Transform the infrastructure and coordination of services and supports serving older adults, people with disabilities, and professional and family caregivers across sectors
  • Guide government and non-government programs, services, policy, and funding
  • Build, enhance, and facilitate shared leadership, partnerships, and collaborations with diverse agencies, groups, and stakeholders to identify and act on shared values, mutual goals, and opportunities
