The National Aging Resource Consortium on Racial and Ethnic Minority Seniors (Consortium)

The Consortium

The National Aging Resource Consortium on Racial and Ethnic Minority Seniors (Consortium) serves as an interconnected resource center for the Aging Network.  The Consortium provides expertise in the design, development and sharing of culturally competent information and materials that can enable the culturally sensitive delivery of services to racial and ethnic minority seniors.

Established by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) in 2012, the Consortium is composed of four national minority aging organizations.  Consortium partners include representative organizations for each of the four major racial and ethnic minority older populations.

Through the Consortium each of these organizations have agreed to partner, sharing their distinct strengths for the benefit of racial and ethnic seniors and their families and caregivers.  Learn more about each of these important organizations and the way they help to meet the unique needs of racial and ethnic minority seniors by visiting their web sites at:
