About: History of the Title VI Programs
In 1978, the Older Americans Act (OAA) was amended to include Title VI, which established programs for the provision of nutrition and supportive services for Native Americans (American Indians, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiians). The program has since expanded to include caregiver support services. Eligible Tribal organizations receive grants in support of the delivery of home and community-based supportive services for their elders, including nutrition services and support for family and informal caregivers.
The Elder Caregiver Program provides one on one assistance, support for caregiver/s and families, assist in navigating resources and provide information and training. Assist in connecting elder/s and their caregivers to available community resources locally and with other service providers based on their concern, needs and interest.
THE REFERRAL FORM should be filled out by the elder, caregiver, or a service organization on your behalf to request supportive services such as home care, lunch delivery, health needs, home repair, or more information about a service of interest or need.
The Referral Form will initiate service for the Bay Mills Community elder tribal member by email or phone call to:
