Title VI Programs for Native American, Native Alaskan & Native Hawaiian Elders

Under Title VI of the Older Americans Act (OAA), the Administration on Aging (AOA) awards grants to provide supportive and nutrition services that are in keeping with the unique cultural and other needs of older Native Americans. Title VI is divided into two parts, Part A-Indian Program and Part B-Native Hawaiian Program. The 1992 amendments to the Act called for coordination between Title VI and Title III and a "hold harmless" clause for all current Title VI grantees (subject to the availability of appropriations). Of the amount appropriated for Title VI for each fiscal year, 90 percent is provided to carry out Part A and 10 percent to carry out Part B.
