Aging Disability Awareness Training
Project Status: Active
Grantee: NYS Office for the Aging
Funding Amount: $150,000 per year
Grant period: 01/2020 - 12/2021
WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
Individuals with IDD are living longer than ever. As people with IDD age, their support needs change. Currently, the aging system is not able to provide supports to people with IDD.
HOW WILL THIS PROJECT HELP?
This project will help Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) to build systems-level and staff ability to better serve people with IDD seeking services. They will also be able to help family member caregivers of people with IDD to plan for their futures.
