U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Alzheimer’s Disease Programs to States and CommunitiesDeadline: July 16, 2018
The Alzheimer’s Disease Programs Initiative (ADPI) is intended to support and promote the development and expansion of dementia-capable home and community-based service (HCBS) systems in states and communities. There are two application options contained: Grants to states (Option A) and grants to communities (Option B). The dementia-capable systems resulting from program activities under either option are expected to provide quality, person-centered services and supports that help individuals remain independent and safe in their communities.
Option A: Grants to states: Cooperative agreements issued under Option A will be will be for one of two possible sub-options:
- Option A.1: Applicants are the governmental entities within states and territories designated as the state agency for dementia-capability and that have working relationships with their state agencies that enable creating and sustaining a dementia-capable HCBS System. Option A.1 has two required objectives, the first of which is the creation, expansion and sustainability of a dementia-capable state HCBS system that includes Single Entry Point/No Wrong Door (SEP/NWD) access for people with dementia and their family caregivers. The second objective is to ensure access to a comprehensive, sustainable set of quality state HCBS that are dementia-capable and provide innovative services to the population with dementia and their family caregivers.
- Option A.2.: This option provides 18 month expansion cooperative agreements for states that received ACL Alzheimer’s disease supportive service program grants for systems integration in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. The expansion grants provide the opportunity for existing or recent state program grantees to build on a specific component of their ongoing project that shows potential but for which expansion would otherwise not be feasible.
Option B: Grants to communities: Cooperative agreements are to the designed to aid community HCBS providers in addressing three specific service gaps in existing dementia-capable HCBS systems for persons living with or those at high risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) and their caregivers. Option B applicants must address each of the following three gap areas:
- Provision of effective supportive services to persons living alone with ADRD in the community
- Improvement of the quality and effectiveness of programs and services dedicated to individuals aging with intellectual and developmental disabilities with ADRD or those at high risk of developing ADRD
- Delivery of behavioral symptom management training and expert consultations for family caregivers
Amount: A total of $20,400,542 is available to make 22 awards. The project period is for 36 months with three 12-month budget periods. Award ranges are based on the following application options:
- Option A.1.: Grants range from $450,000-$650,000.
- Option A.2.: Grants range from $350,000-$400,000.
- Option B: Grants range from $800,000-$1,000,000.
A 25% cost share is required across all options.
- Option A.1.: States and territories eligible are those that do not have active ACL State dementia-capability grants. All states without active grants are eligible apply, however those states that have not benefited from ADSSP grants since before 2011 will be given priority consideration.
- Option A.2.: States that received ACL Alzheimer’s disease supportive service program grants for systems integration in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.
- Option B: Private and/or public community-based eEntities that are able to 1) demonstrate their operation within an existing dementia-capable HCBS system dedicated to the population that they serve, and 2) articulate opportunities and additional services that would enhance and strengthen the existing dementia-capable HCBS system within which they are operating.
