The Center on Aging and Community Living (CACL) is a collaboration between the Institute on Disability (IOD) and the Institute for Health Policy and Practice (IHPP) at the University of New Hampshire. These two institutes have been actively engaged in projects related to aging and long term care for many years.

Jointly, IOD and IHPP provide ongoing support in designing, implementing and evaluating systems change initiatives to the Division of Community Based Services, the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, the ServiceLink Resource Center Network and various other partners in the Aging Network. By maximizing available resources and providing assistance, CACL ensures that New Hampshire will benefit from an integrated center of applied research, evaluation and training relevant to aging and community living.

CACL is a trusted university-based resource for applied research, evaluation and technical assistance, which will improve knowledge, policies and practices that guide New Hampshire citizens and policy makers in preparing for the aging of the population.


CACL constructively engages partners within and outside the University in applied research that advances sustainable, person-centered options for aging and community living. CACL supports system change through an interdisciplinary approach to scholarship, advocacy, evaluation, and the development and dissemination of tools and skills that innovate and improve social models for consumer-driven services and supports.


All New Hampshire residents have access to person-centered options to allow them to live and age in the communities of their choice.
