Funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living (including AoA as of April 2012), the Alzheimer’s Disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP), formerly known as the Alzheimer’s Disease Demonstration Grants to States program (ADDGS), supports state efforts to expand the availability of community-level supportive services for persons with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders (ADRD) and their caregivers.
The mission of the ADSSP is to expand the availability of diagnostic and support services for persons with ADRD, their families, and their caregivers, as well as to improve the responsiveness of the home and community-based care system to persons with dementia. The program focuses on serving hard-to-reach and underserved persons with ADRD and their family caregivers using proven and innovative models.
There are two types of ADSSP grants: evidence-based and innovation. Evidence-based grants require states to demonstrate how existing evidence-based interventions that help people with ADRD and their family caregivers can be translated into effective supportive service programs at the community level. Innovation grants require states and their partners to explore innovative approaches to improving the delivery of supportive services at the community-level to people with ADRD and their family caregivers. To learn more about how to apply for funding, please visit the Funding Opportunities page and to learn more about the ADSSP program, please visit the ADSSP page, both on the AoA website.
