View the accompanying fact sheet on Area Agencies on Aging and Title VI Native American Programs
Over 2.6 million U.S. children are raised by grandparents, other relatives or close family friends. Many Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) and Title VI Native American Aging Programs (Title VI programs) provide a variety of supportive services for kinship/grandfamilies.
This webinar highlighted new research that documents how AAAs and Title VI programs are helping these families. We heard from Area Agencies on Aging and Title VI programs about their successes in serving kinship/grandfamilies and why it’s important to develop and sustain programs to support these families.
