The National Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) advocates for improved comprehensive services to American Indian and Alaska Native elders. Since the organization was formed in 1976, by a group of tribal chairmen, it has evolved into the nation's foremost non-profit advocate for this population. As a national contractor currently operating the Senior Community Service Empoyment Program (SCSEP), NICOA provides employment training opportunities for nearly a thousand elders in 14 states. The organization also partners with federal agencies, universities, and other aging organizations to conduct activities benefitting Indian elders.
