In April, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services announced the creation of a new organization, the Administration for Community Living (ACL).
Secretary Sebelius released a statement saying,
The Administration for Community Living will bring together the Administration on Aging, the Office on Disability and the Administration on Developmental Disabilities into a single agency that supports both cross-cutting initiatives and efforts focused on the unique needs of individual groups, such as children with developmental disabilities or seniors with dementia. This new agency will work on increasing access to community supports and achieving full community participation for people with disabilities and seniors.
