ADvancing States to Partner with NAPCA to Improve Language Access for AAPI Caregivers

The National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (NAPCA) has been awarded an ACL grant intended to build capacity for NAPCA's multilingual Helpline and National Resource Center on Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Aging programs. NAPCA will collaborate with HCF to develop language access to HFC’s Recharge Respite and Extended Relief Respite grant programs. They will also develop new support group options for AAPI millennial caregivers who are caring for a person with Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementias (ADRD).

ADvancing States will partner with NAPCA to support the multilingual Helpline, building capacity for in-language Information & Referral/Assistance with AAPI older adults and family caregivers into the future. Additional partners on this grant include Evaluation Specialists, UCSF School of Nursing, and ARCH National Respite Network along with HFC.
