Extractions: Home Quick Index Site Index What's New ... E-Mail AoA American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian Program The Administration on Aging (AoA) advocates for older American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. AoA coordinates activities with other federal departments and agencies, administers grants, and collects and disseminates information related to the problems of older Native Americans. Grants to Native Americans Under Title VI of the Older Americans Act, grant awards are made directly to tribal and native organizations representing American Indian, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiian organizations to provide supportive and nutrition services, including congregate and home-delivered meals. In 1999, a total of $18,475,000 was awarded to 225 tribal organizations. Nutrition services are a major component of tribal Title VI programs. Native elders receive nearly three million congregate and home-delivered meals annually. Most sites provide hot congregate meals four to five times a week. Home-delivered meals are delivered five times a week for elders who generally are in poorer health, are more functionally impaired, get out of their homes less often, and need in-home supportive services. Most programs provide modified diets for diabetics, or others who might be on low-fat, low-cholesterol, and low-sodium diets. Several programs provide special nutrition services such as meals for homeless older persons, an evening meal option for home-delivered meal participants, and weekend home-delivered meals.
