Objectives, Priorities, and Progress of the Administration on Aging's Direct Training Grant Program.
Administration on Aging (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The training grant program (Title V) of the Older Americans Act became operative in January 1966. The primary goal of education and training programs in aging is to equip adequate numbers of personnel, including older people, for leadership and professional practice in programs and services through which the older population will have: (1) opportunity for continued independence, self expression, and fulfillment, and (2) assistance in coping with changes and crises. Priorities established to meet the program objective are: (1) broad planning and administration in aging for work in public and voluntary programs at Federal, State, and local levels; (2) planning, administrative, and management training in the field of retirement housing, villages, and homes for the aged; (3) planning, administration, and program supervision for personnel of multiservice centers; (4) training for specialists in aging in areas such as recreation, counseling, adult education, etc.; (5) preparation of faculty personnel and specialists in aging; (6) leadership training; and (7) training for semiprofessional and technical personnel. Progress on active projects and results of completed projects are presented. (DB)
