Comment on the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers

Comment period closes November 30.

The public comment period for the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers will close at 11:59 PM on November 30, 2022. The Strategy, which was released on September 21, 2022, was developed jointly by the advisory councils established by the Recognize, Assist, Include, Support, and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act and the Supporting Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (SGRG) Act, with extensive input from family caregivers, the people they support, and other stakeholders. 

The Strategy is intended to serve as a national roadmap to better recognize and support family and kinship caregivers of all ages, backgrounds, and caregiving situations. It includes nearly 350 actions the federal government will take to support family caregivers in the coming year and more than 150 actions that can be adopted at other levels of government and across the private sector to build a system to support family caregivers.

ACL leads implementation of the RAISE and SGRG Acts and facilitates the work of both advisory councils. ACL is requesting comments on: 

  1. The most important topics/issues for the advisory councils to focus on moving forward; and 
  2. Issues that were not covered by the initial strategy that should be addressed in future updates.

Comments can be submitted via an online form. Respondents have the option to comment on each individual component of the Strategy or provide comments about the Strategy as a whole.
