Description: The Administration on Aging (AoA) and the Administration on Disabilities (AoD) are collaborating to support the planning of future state-based collaborative projects to make progress in strategies and facilitate decisional supports for all adults. The plans will be developed with consensus from inclusive representational groups of disability and aging communities, and other key stakeholders. This would include, but not be limited to, Supported Decision Making (SDM) as a specific way of supporting decisions, and would require looking across other mechanisms to strengthening decisional capacity. Through this funding opportunity announcement, three (3) to five (5) state planning grants will be awarded at a federal share of approximately $50,000 to $75,000 each. At the end of the planning year, the planning year, grantees will produce a written document with the following five components: An existing or newly formed coalition with signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) to develop a State coalition action plan that advances a full range of strategies to supporting decision making across the age spectrum.
