Department of Health and Human Services Announces new Administration for Community Living

Today, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the creation of a new Administration for Community Living (ACL) within HHS. The ACL will bring together the Administration on Aging, the Office on Disability, and the Administration on Developmental Disabilities into a single agency that supports both cross-cutting initiatives and efforts focused on the unique needs of individual groups, such as children with developmental disabilities or seniors with dementia. This new agency is designed to build on the Administration’s Year of Community Living initiative by working on increasing access to community supports and achieving full community participation for people with disabilities and seniors.
