The California Department of Aging (CDA) is pleased to release Round 2 of the Local Aging & Disability Action Planning (LADAP) Grant Program – Request for Applications (RFA). CDA will award grants to communities to plan and develop local age and disability-friendly action plans. The local plans developed under this grant program aim to improve a community’s livability and address the current, emerging, and future needs of California’s older adults, people with disabilities, and caregivers through cross-sector collaboration and transformational systems change. The goals of the LADAP grant program align with California’s Master Plan for Aging (MPA) and our state’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. The grant program runs through March 31, 2025.

CDA accepted questions on the LADAP RFA from potential applicants through September 6, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. (PT). CDA’s responses to the questions received are available: LADAP RFA Q&A. For additional information on the RFA question and response process, see pages 11-12 of the RFA.
