Grants to USA and territories state government agencies and community-based private and public service providers to develop and expand dementia-capable home and community-based services. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. All successful applicants are required to dedicate 50% of the total program budget to the provision of direct services to persons living with dementia and caregivers.
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. 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.
The program is designed to pilot much needed dementia-capable HCBS programs to states and communities, evaluation of program outcomes and using program outcome data to garner support to sustain successful initiatives beyond the federal program period. The ADPI program is intended to advance non-clinical, social models of HCBS in support of persons with dementia and their caregivers. It is through programs such as this that the Administration for Community Living (ACL) demonstrates its commitment to its mission to maximize the independence, well-being, and health of older adults, people with disabilities, and their families and caregivers.
Option A: Grants to States:

New state applicants, those that did not receive ACL Alzheimer's grants between 2011 and 2018 must agree to and propose a plan to implement dementia-capable HCBS systems that meet the two FOA objectives outlined below, including the accompanying core components.
All applicants are expected to fully describe their methods for achieving the following two objectives and their core components:
Objective 1: Create and sustain a dementia-capable HCBS system that includes Single Entry Point/No Wrong Door (SEP/NWD) access for people with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) and their caregivers.

1.b. Options Counseling and Assistance
1.c. Person-Centered Care Transitions Across Multiple Settings
Objective 2: Ensure access to a comprehensive, sustainable set of quality services/interventions that are dementia-capable and provide innovative services to the population with dementia and their family caregivers.
2.a Comprehensive set of services
2.b Quality assurance system
2.c Sustainable service system
A.2: Expansion Grants to States
Applicants for expansion grants must describe their current system and the core program component grant activities implemented through a State dementia-capable systems integration cooperative agreement awarded between 2011 and 2018.
Option B: Grants to Communities
Grants under this option are dedicated to filling services gaps identified through the work of and recommendations from the National Alzheimer's Project Act Advisory Committee. Option B projects are designed to provide dementia-capable home and community-based services (HCBS) to targeted special populations as well as targeted dementia capability training.
Applications will demonstrate intent to support individuals with ADRD and their caregivers, that address each of the three identified dementia-care service gap areas:
1. Develop and deliver supportive services to persons living alone with ADRD in communities
2. Improve the quality and effectiveness of programs and services dedicated to individuals aging with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) with ADRD or those at high risk of developing ADRD
3. Deliver behavioral symptom management training and expert consultation to family caregivers
