What We've Achieved
Led by SAGE, the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging is the country's first and only technical assistance resource center aimed at improving the quality of services and supports offered to lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender older adults. Established in 2010 through a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging provides training, technical assistance and educational resources to aging providers, LGBT organizations and LGBT older adults. The center is led in collaboration with 18 leading organizations from around the country.

History. In February 2010, the US Department of Health and Human Services announced that SAGE—in partnership with 10 leading organizations nationwide—had received a historic grant to seed the creation of National Resource Center on LGBT Aging. In October 2010, the center officially launched, providing critical resources for years to come. Learn more about this historic moment.

Training for Aging Providers and LGBT Organizations. The National Resource Center on LGBT Aging offers a suite of in-person and online cultural competence trainings on the various issues affecting LGBT older people. To learn more, request a training or find a certified NRC trainer in your state, please visit the NRC website. Request a one-of-its-kind training.

A unique clearinghouse of educational resources. The website for the National Resource Center on LGBT serves as a robust hub of educational resources on LGBT aging. To educate aging providers, LGBT organizations and LGBT older people about the many issues facing our aging communities, SAGE has created and compiled hundreds of commentaries, videos, publications, and much more. Scroll through our resources.

Advocacy to establish this treasured resource. The upcoming reauthorization of the Older Americans Act will provide a pivotal opportunity to permanently establish the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, ensuring that these vital resources support millions of LGBT older adults in future generations.
