Welcome to the Lifespan Grantees/Partners Networking Page

In September 2009, the US Administration on Aging (AoA) funded twelve states to establish or enhance Statewide Lifespan Respite Systems in accordance with the Lifespan Respite Care Act (P.L. 109-442).  To date, 35 states and the District of Columbia have received Lifespan Respite grants. The grants are now administered by the Administration for Community Living. For more information, see Lifespan Respite Grantees.

The ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center is funded by the Administration for Community Living at the US Department of Health and Human Services to provide training and technical assistance to the federally funded Lifespan Respite Grantees and their partners. For additional Lifespan Respite Training and Technical Assistance, visit the TA Center.
