The ACL has expressed that three gap areas must be addressed in eligible proposals: 1) supporting people living alone with dementia; 2) people diagnosed with both an intellectual/developmental disability and dementia; and 3) helping family care partners manage the behavioral symptoms of dementia.

An estimated 6.2 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD). As the population of older adults increases, researchers anticipate that the number of people living with ADRD will double within the next three decades. ACL’s ADPI program is dedicated to meeting this challenge by developing and expanding dementia capability in states and communities across the nation, including tribal communities.
