The Office for American Indian, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian Programs currently administers the Title VI program that was established in 1978 as part of the Older Americans Act. Our office oversees Title VI funding to programs for the provision of nutrition, supportive services, and caregiver support services for American Indians, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiians. The Older Indians website is dedicated to delivering training and technical assistance resources to Title VI Directors and serves as a forum for increased communication between Title VI programs.
