Training and Manpower Development Activities Supported by the Administration on Aging Under Title IV-A of the Older Americans Act of 1965, as Amended. Program Descriptions.
Administration on Aging (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This compilation of brief program descriptions is intended to provide information about current projects being supported by the Administration on Aging (AoA) under the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended. Descriptions were prepared by staff from the Division of Manpower Resources, and generally are edited versions of project summaries submitted by the grantees. AoA is authorized to help meet critical shortages of adequately trained personnel for programs in aging by: (1) developing information on the present and long-range need for personnel: (2) providing a broad range of training and retraining opportunities responsive to the changing needs of aging programs; (3) attracting a greater number of qualified personnel into the field of aging; and (4) helping to make personnel training programs more responsive to the need for more trained personnel in the aging field. The descriptions are organized according to the universities receiving grants and each project description includes the name and address of a contact person for further information. (Author/NG)
