Resources for SMPs

Working with ACL/AoA

The SMP program is administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living (ACL), Administration on Aging (AoA). The SMP grants are cooperative agreements between ACL/AoA and the project or grantee. Under cooperative agreements, grantees work in collaboration with ACL/AoA to successfully fulfill the grant requirements and are assigned an ACL Project Officer and ACL Grants Management Specialist, as indicated on the SMP Notice of Award. For more information about the SMP program from ACL/AoA,  click here.

SMP reporting requirements to ACL/AoA are available on the ACL/AoA website.

SMP Listserv

ACL/AoA hosts a listserv for the SMP network. ACL/AoA uses this listserv to make important announcements. The SMP Resource Center also disseminates new and updated products and publications using this listserv and uses it to announce SMP Resource Center training events. SMPs are also invited to communicate program-related information with each other using this service. For AoA’s policies regarding the SMP listserv, click here, then scroll to the bottom of the page.
