Tribal aging units can work with the Tribal Technical Assistance Center for culturally-appropriate and tribal-specific technical assistance on two programs funded through the Older Americans Act (OAA):

  • Wisconsin Elders Act (Title III of OAA)
  • Services for Native Americans programs (Title VI of OAA)

The center also serves as a liaison to both the area agency on aging (GWAAR) and the State Office on Aging, sharing information, communication ideas and concerns, and problem-solving.

You can get help with questions like:

  • How long can a person be on the advisory board?
  • Who is eligible for family caregiver support services?
  • Do you know who to talk to about home-delivered meals funding?
