The Administration for Community Living (ACL) focuses on maximizing the independence, well-being, and health of older adults, people with disabilities across the lifespan, and their families and caregivers. ACL’s vision for all people, regardless of age and disability, is to live with dignity, make their own choices, and participate fully in society. We know that for many older adults and people with disabilities, this vision of community living depends on accessible and reliable transportation options.
ACL funds a number of national aging and disability networks that provide direct services as well as technical assistance and resource centers that work to strengthen program and foster collaboration and cross-sector partnerships. Here are a few examples of grantees who we hope can serve as partners and resources.
