Alzheimer's Disease Programs Initiative (ADPI) - Grants to States and Communities (Round Two)

Cooperative agreements to USA and territories government and tribal entities, for-profits, nonprofit organizations, and IHEs to develop and expand services for individuals with dementia. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The ADPI program is intended to advance non-clinical, social models of home and community-based services in support of persons with dementia and their caregivers.

Cooperative agreements under this Alzheimer’s Disease Programs Initiative (ADPI) funding opportunity announcement (FOA), are 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 in this single FOA: Grants to States (Option A) and Grants to Communities (Option B). No entity is eligible to apply for both State and Community options and no entity is eligible to hold more than one ADPI grant at a time. The dementia-capable systems resulting from program activities under either option are expected to provide quality, person-centered services and supports that help individuals living with dementia and their caregiver remain independent and safe in their communities.Option A: Grants to StatesOption A 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 caregivers.Option B: Grants to CommunitiesOption B cooperative agreements are designed to aid community-based 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; andDelivery of behavioral symptom management training and expert consultations for family caregivers.Objectives for both options can be found starting on page 8 of the NOFO.
