Funders

Administration for Community Living logoThe Administration for Community Living (ACL) was initially established on April 18, 2012 by bringing together the Administration on Aging, the Office on Disability and the Administration on Developmental Disabilities. Since then, ACL has grown significantly. Through budget legislation in subsequent years, Congress moved several programs that serve older adults and people with disabilities from other agencies to ACL, including the State Health Insurance Assistance Program, the Paralysis Resource Center, and the Limb Loss Resource Center. The 2014 Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act moved the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research and the independent living and assistive technology programs from the Department of Education to ACL.

On June 2, 2015 the Federal Register published ACL’s updated Statement of Organization, Functions, and Delegations of Authority. An online version of the published Statement is also available. The Statement reflects ACL’s expanded mission and details the organization structure and roles and responsibilities of its centers and offices.

From the beginning, ACL was based on a commitment to one fundamental principle—that people with disabilities and older adults should be able to live where they choose, with the people they choose and fully participate in their communities. Inherent in this principle is the core belief that everyone can contribute, throughout their lives.
