Family Caregiving Advisory Council Seeks Input

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) is requesting information from individuals and organizations to assist the RAISE Family Caregiving Advisory Council in developing goals, objectives and recommendations for an initial report to Congress and national family caregiving strategy, which are required by the RAISE Family Caregivers Act of 2017. The input will also help the Council plan public listening sessions. See also the Federal Register notice.

Family caregiving affects those in rural areas and cities, crosses cultural boundaries, and can span generations in a single household. A national strategy must address supporting caregivers of older adults as well as people of any age with long-term care and respite care needs, including people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
Through this RFI, ACL seeks input on a broad range of family caregiving experiences. We would like to learn from you about the challenges faced every day by caregivers. We also want to hear about recommended actions and best practices that can expand or improve existing supports for caregivers.
Deadline: February 7, 2020, 11:59 PM ET
