Executive Director Larry Curley will speak on current issues that NICOA is working on and give a brief overview of special projects that are being done to benefit tribal elders. He will speak in the following sessions: “This Tribal Consultation”, “Aging Policy: Washington & National Update”, and “Title VI: Are the rules in the Law? Or the regulations? Or tribal policy?”. The Title VI Program was enabled to give American Indians and Alaska Natives the ability to provide culturally appropriate care to eligible tribal elders. The Title VI regulations are brief, often refer to Title III regulations, and allow for tribal determination in many areas. This session will review Title VI regulations to clarify the difference between requirements, regulations, policies and tribal determination in managing Title VI programs.
