The National Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) will be convening weekly calls with all Title VI grantees about the coronavirus (COVID-19). These calls will provide new information and updates to tribal programs, but most importantly are an opportunity for tribes to discuss the impact that COVID-19 is having in your communities.
The Administration for Community Living will be on all calls, as will resource centers from the National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative, the University of Alaska, the University of Hawaii and the University of North Dakota.
Please make every effort to join us each week. This is an unbelievable, but very real emergency. Let’s all work together to provide the latest information and best care to our tribal elders.
Weekly on Fridays at 3 p.m. EDT
Conference phone number: 888-788-6210
