Other Centers

The National Resource Center on Native American Aging (NRCNAA) is one of three centers that exist. The two others; one in Alaska and one in Hawaii; each work specifically with their unique state native populations. The three centers collaborate on the Identifying Our Needs: A Survey of Elders project and other projects jointly and individually.

To learn more about the work of the national resource centers, you can visit their sites or contact them directly:

Administration for Community Living

The NRCNAA is supported by a cooperative agreement with the Administration for Community Living (ACL), Department of Health and Human Services. This agreement is administered by the Office for American Indian, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian Programs.

The ACL is one of the nation's largest providers of home and community-based care for older persons and their caregivers. ACL's mission is to promote the dignity and independence of older people, and to help society prepare for an aging population.
