Grants to USA and territories state government agencies and community-based private and public service providers to develop and expand services to individuals with dementia. 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.

Option A: Grants to States:
Cooperative agreements issued under Option A (Grants to States) will be for one of two possible sub-options (A.1 & A.2).
A.1: New Grants to States
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.a. Information, Referral and Access
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.
Applicants must fully describe how they plan to implement the following three core
components of Objective 2 by the end of the cooperative agreement period. These components
include the following:
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 2019. Core components are outlined above
in the section for new state grants.
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 Council. 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
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.
For details on these program options, see pages 1-3 and pages 6-9 of the Funding Guidelines document in Attached Files below. 
For general program requirements and components, see pages 9-12.
