With this announcement, the Office of American Indian, Alaskan Natives and Native Hawaiian Program (OAIANNHP) is proposing to award one new cooperative agreement for a 5-year grant period to fund a National Resource Center on “American Indian, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian Long-Term Service and Support” (NRCAIANNHLTSS).

Deadline: 06/03/2023

Size of the Grant: $250,000

Grant Duration: 5 years


The national resource center will address the unmet needs of tribal-specific and culturally appropriate LTSS information and guidance to tribes. The outcomes of the FOA will be to 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; and based on documented best practices, the resource center will develop a practical and hands on toolkit for tribes to assist in implementing LTSS in their individual tribal communities.

Additionally, the resource center will further target its services to the 28 tribes that receive Title VI grants under the OAIANNHP, however it will also have publicly available resources that are accessible to all tribes and organizations that work with the American Indian, Alaskan Native and Hawaiian populations. The resource center will also 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.
