New Data Profile: Users of National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) Services

ACL has released a data profile using data from the Caregiver Outcome Evaluation Study of the National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP). This data profile, “Users of National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) Services,” compares characteristics of caregivers that are NFCSP service users and area agencies on aging (AAA) clients, with caregivers who are AAA clients only, in addition to caregivers who are neither. This data profile examines characteristics of caregivers including age, relationship to care recipient, and level of caregiving intensity.

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) conducted an outcome evaluation of the Older Americans Act Title III-E National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP).The NFCSP provides grants to states and territories to fund various supports that help family and informal caregivers care for older adults in their homes for as long as possible. The Caregiver Outcome Evaluation Study of the NFCSP was released in 2018.
