Interested in resources and information to support grandfamilies and kinship families? Sign up to access resources, including interactive learning opportunities from peers and an array of experts. USAging is a partner in the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network, led by Generations United and funded by ACL.

As the first-ever national technical assistance center on grandfamilies and kinship families, the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network exists, free of charge, to offer a new way for government agencies and nonprofit organizations in states, tribes and territories to collaborate and work across jurisdictional and systemic boundaries to improve supports and services for grandfamilies and kinship families. This five-year project, launched in 2021, is led by Generations United. USAging is one of five key project partners which also include the National Caucus and Center on Black Aging, the National Indian Child Welfare Association, ZERO TO THREE and Child Trends. A steering committee of the nation’s leading experts on kinship and grandfamilies, including caregivers from the Generations United GRAND Voices Network, will also support the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network.
