The Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965, as amended, includes provisions to increase awareness of citizens of all ages of the need to assume personal responsibility for their own longevity.

In response to this provision, AoA established the National Minority Aging Organizations Technical Assistance

Centers Program (Centers).

Through the Program, funds are awarded to national minority aging organizations (NMAOs) which represent Native American and Alaska Natives (AI/AN).

For Fiscal Year 2012 and beyond, AoA launched a competition to establish a consortium of National Minority Aging Organizations capable of providing technical assistance to the Aging Network.

The National Aging Resource Consortium on Racial and Ethnic Minority Seniors (Consortium) will serve as a resource center to assist the Aging Network to accomplish its work in a culturally sensitive and culturally competent manner.

AoA will make approximately four (4) awards in the form of cooperative agreements for new projects.

Each project should focus on their specific target population.

This announcement calls for the participation of a Native American consortium member.

We received applications for the African American, Hispanic and Asian Pacific Islanders organizations.

To complete the consortiums mission the participation of a Native American organization is needed.

This announcement calls for 1 project at up to $226,54 6. This project will be funded for a three (3) year period, contingent upon the availability of federal funds.

Grantee is required to cover at least 25% of the total program costs from non-federal cash or in-kind resources.
