New Fact Sheet Highlights Impact of COVID-19 on Title VI Native American Aging Programs and Services

Title VI Native American aging programs have shown resilience and creativity in meeting the needs of their elders during the COVID-19 pandemic. n4a's newly released “Fast Facts” highlights key findings from the National Title VI Program Survey about the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian elders served by Title VI programs.

In addition to findings on how the pandemic increased and changed the needs of elders, the fact sheet shows how Title VI programs addressed these needs by adding or expanding programs, what workforce challenges they experienced and new technical assistance needs that have emerged.
 
This fact sheet is the first component of the forthcoming Title VI survey toolkit, due to be released this summer. In addition to the National Title VI Survey Report, the toolkit will also include regional reports, a data brief on home modification and repair services, a customizable PowerPoint template with key facts, sample social media posts and sample newsletter articles that Title VI programs can use to promote their work.
