What is the Aging and Disability Partnership?

The Aging and Disability Partnership was established by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) as part of Administration for Community Living (ACL) grant “Building the Business Capacity of Aging and Disability Community-Based Networks for Managed Long-Term Services and Supports.” It is a partnership between n4a and the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN), the Disability Rights and Education Defense Fund (DREDF), Justice in Aging, and Health Management Associates (HMA).

This Partnership blends the on-the-ground community-based experience of both the aging and disability networks together with a strong consumer/legal advocacy voice and health/managed care technical experience. Learn more about the Partnership here.

Our Vision

The entire health care delivery system, especially Medicaid, is undergoing a major transition. This transformation is and will continue to have profound effects on two of the major population groups that rely heavily on Medicaid—older adults and people with disabilities.

The goal of the project is to leverage the Aging and Disability Networks’ extensive infrastructure, service capacity and expertise, to ensure the delivery of efficient, high-quality MLTSS to older adults and people with disabilities thanks to training.
