Grants to USA Indian tribal, nonprofit, and public organizations representing federally recognized Tribes, Native Hawaiians, and Alaskan Villages for caregiving, supportive, and nutrition services. The purpose of the program is to foster the well-being and independence of Alaskan Native, American Indian, and Native Hawaiian tribal elders and caregivers living within their communities with services consistent with locally-determined needs.

Title VI Parts A/B authorize grants to provide nutrition and supportive services. Required nutrition services include congregate meals and home-delivered meals. Other nutrition-related services could include nutrition counseling, nutrition education, sponsorship of farmer’s market programs, or distribution centers for food banks and charitable organizations. Required supportive services include information and assistance, but these funds could also provide transportation, chore services, and many other services that contribute to the well-being of elders.

Title VI Part C authorizes grants to provide caregiver support services. The program helps tribes provide locally-determined systems of support services for family caregivers. 

Funding is based on the number of eligible elders age 60 and older living in the organization’s proposed service area as of April 1, 2020. For those applying for Title VI, Parts A or B funding, you have the option to also apply for Part C. However, to apply for Part C, you must apply for both Part A or B and Part C. Applications submitted for Part C only will not be reviewed.
