  • One resource available to Title VI Programs include the Title VI Evaluation Tool (Excel) and Title VI Evaluation Tool User Guide (PDF) to help Title VI programs create and customize client feedback surveys for Part A/B and Part C services.


    The Administration for Community Living (ACL) encourages all Title VI grantees to participate in regular program evaluation. Evaluation is the ongoing and systematic process of gathering information to provide useful feedback that can be used to refine program services. Routinely evaluating program services and participant satisfaction can help Title VI programs ensure the needs of their elders and caregivers are being met.


    Evaluation can sometimes feel like a challenge. As program directors, you likely have questions about your program but may not know where or how to start with evaluation. As part of the Evaluation of the ACL Title VI Programs , ICF, in partnership with ACL, worked with a group of Title VI grantees to understand the kinds of questions local Title VI programs have about their program and what types of resources would be most helpful in answering those questions. A common concern shared by program staff was how to know if program services are meeting the needs of elders and caregivers and what other needs elders and caregivers may have. To help with that, ICF developed the Title VI Evaluation Toolkit (under Resources and Useful Links). The toolkit, developed with input from local Title VI program staff, is a ready to use resource designed to help Title VI programs better understand how nutrition services, supportive services, and caregiver support services are meeting the needs of elders and caregivers. The Title VI Evaluation Toolkit includes:

    User Guide– provides step-by-step guidance to help program staff evaluate their program. The User Guide includes sections on preparing for evaluation, collecting feedback from elders and caregivers, and analyzing and using findings.

    Surveys– two surveys, one for Title VI elders and one for Title VI caregivers, to help program staff assess elder and caregiver use and satisfaction with program services. Each survey (Part A/B and Part C) includes questions designed to gather demographic information (e.g., gender, age, living status) and information specific to either Part A/B (nutrition and supportive services) or Part C (caregiver support services) including participation, satisfaction, and unmet needs.

    Survey Response Spreadsheet– to help program staff analyze their survey responses with auto-generating tables and charts. After entering the survey results in the pre-built spreadsheet (step-by step directions are in the User Guide), the spreadsheet will automatically create graphs to help program staff better see and understand their data.


    Evaluation is an important tool to help ensure our programs are meeting the needs of the elders and caregivers in our communities. The Title VI Evaluation Toolkit can help you better understand who your program is serving, how program services are being used, and identify opportunities to strengthen program services. We encourage you to download your free copy of the Title VI Evaluation Toolkit– the User Guide will walk you step-by-step through using the surveys to gain valuable information from your elders and using that information to inform your program planning.

    “I honestly love the Graph Charts, it is a very helpful tool for our program and shows us exactly what our elders needs are.” – Title VI grantee

  • Another resource available to Title VI Programs is the Title VI Data Infographic Tool (PPT) and Title VI Data Infographic Tool User Guide (PDF) and Title VI Data Infographic Tool Calculations Worksheet (Excel) to help Title VI programs create and customize data-based infographics for their programs.


    As a Title VI program director, you know you are doing critical work in your community, and you may be looking for an impactful way to share with others what your program is doing. As part of the Evaluation of the ACL Title VI Programs , ICF, in partnership with ACL, developed the Title VI Infographic Toolkit.

    Infographics are highly visual representations of program information and data that together tell a story. The Title VI Infographic Toolkit is designed to help you tell your Title VI program’s story using information you already have. To develop the Title VI Infographic Toolkit, ICF worked with a group of Title VI grantees to understand what kinds of program information you already collect and what kinds of information key stakeholders typically want to understand.

    As a Title VI grantee, you already collect program information (data) for your annual Program Performance Report (PPR). Many of you also participate in the Elder Needs Assessment (ENA) through the National Resource Center on Native American Aging. The Title VI Infographic uses your PPR and ENA data to tell the story of your Title VI program.


    The infographic describes the Title VI program service categories and uses data visualizations to show the health status of the elders in your community along with a snapshot of your program services including the percent of elders using each of your services and the number of services used by elders. The infographic also includes a section for you to highlight your outreach services and special events as well as key program partners. The infographic combines all of this in a way that is easy to understand and share with others.

    The Title VI Infographic Toolkit includes:

    User Guide – provides step-by-step guidance to help you find your program data and how to update the infographic with your data. The User Guide also includes tips on how to use your infographic for program monitoring and to engage stakeholders.

    Title VI Data Infographic Tool (PPT) – a highly visual display of your program data. The infographic can be updated with new program data annually and can help you track your program over time.

    Data Calculations Worksheet – to help you prepare your data to be entered into the infographic. Just enter your PPR and Elder Needs Assessment data directly into the Data Calculations Worksheet (step-by-step directions in the User Guide), and the worksheet will automatically calculate your data for you. You can then enter that information directly into the infographic.

    Title VI program directors do incredibly important work. Providing nutrition and supportive services to elders is critical for their health and wellbeing, and it is important to be able to share that story with others in your community. The Title VI Infographic Toolkit can help you see the story of your Title VI program year by year and help you share that story with others. We encourage you to download your free copy of the Title VI Infographic Toolkit – the User Guide will walk you step-by-step through updating the infographic with your program data. For more information, contact: kristen.hudgins@acl.hhs.gov.

    “The infographic … will help me paint a picture for leadership. Data such as numbers, raw data, is good but to have visualizations for them to relate to is awesome.” – Title VI grantee

Interagency Health Equity Collaborative Data Compendium

In November 2016, agencies within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal partners undertook the task of compiling information on health equity data. This data compilation, the Compendium of Federal Datasets Addressing Health Disparities (Compendium), has been updated and incorporates datasets and resources from agencies within HHS. The Compendium is an initiative of the Interdepartmental Health Equity Collaborative (IHEC) and the HHS Office of Minority Health to encourage intersectoral collaboration across federal agencies to better address health disparities.

The data within the Compendium serves as a resource that identifies the relationship between socioeconomic factors, social determinants of health, and health equity. This new Compendium includes descriptions of over 250 databases from HHS and nine other Departments/federal partners, information on data sources relevant to opioid use/research, and information on datasets with more controlled access (e.g. those available from biorepositories).
