The grant purpose is to provide funding to communities across the state to plan and develop their own, cross-sector local age- and disability-friendly plans.
Under the grant program, CDA will support local communities in planning and creating their own age and disability-friendly action plans. The local plans developed under this grant program aim to improve a community’s livability and address the current, emerging, and future needs of California’s older adults, people with disabilities, caregivers, and families through cross-sector collaboration and transformational systems change.
The purpose is to provide funding to communities across the state to plan and develop their own, cross-sector local age- and disability-friendly plans that: 1) transform the infrastructure and coordination of services and supports for older adults, people with disabilities, caregivers, and families; 2) Elevate the strengths and voices of community members who are aging and/or living with a disability; 3) Expand culturally relevant and accessible services and opportunities to older adults, people with disabilities, caregivers, and families; 4) Address health and other inequities that can become cumulative with age; and 5) Combat racism, ageism, ableism, and biases in aging and disability systems of care. The grant program goals align with California’s Master Plan for Aging (MPA).
