Dear Aging and Disability I&R Professionals,

Earlier this month, we invited aging and disability I&R/A programs to take the 2018 Aging and Disability I&R/A National Survey. Given its comprehensive nature, the deadline to complete the survey has been extended to April 30.

NCIL logo - National Council on Independent LivingFor efficiency and consistency, your agency may wish to coordinate a single response to the survey on behalf of your agency. The I&R Center’s director, Nanette Relave, is available to address questions, offer assistance, and provide the survey in an alternate formats. She can be contacted at 202-898-2578 x305 or [email protected].

The 2018 Aging and Disability I&R/A National Survey is designed to assess the state of Information and Referral/Assistance (I&R/A) systems serving older adults, persons with disabilities, and caregivers. Findings from the survey will highlight important trends and developments in the provision of I&R/A services as well as innovative practices. The results of the survey will be compiled into a final report and shared with the I&R/A network. This survey is being conducted in partnership with NCIL.

We truly appreciate your time and assistance in completing this survey to increase our collective knowledge and understanding of the delivery of I&R/A to older adults and individuals with disabilities!
