Lance Robertson Confirmed as New ACL Administrator

August 11, 2017

On August 3, the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee confirmed nominee Lance Robertson as the new Assistant Secretary on Aging and the Administrator of the Administration for Community Living (ACL). During his nomination hearing, Robertson laid out on his four-pronged strategy that he plans to implement during his tenure as the Assistant Secretary:

  • Improve access to information about LTC services and supports that are available both with publicly-funded and private-sector resources;
  • Promote vouchers, seek evidence-based solutions, and build support systems for working caregivers;
  • Strengthen elder justice; and
  • Increase the network’s business acumen, specifically in non-profit aging and disability community-based organizations.
