ACL is pleased to announce the 2021 cohorts of Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) and Falls Prevention grantees. The project period for these grants is May 1, 2021 – April 30, 2024.
The new CDSME grantees will reach an estimated 14,000 older adults and adults with disabilities through evidence-based CDSME and self-management support programs. The cooperative agreements are intended to increase the number of CDSME program participants, address the behavioral and social determinants of health, while concurrently enhancing the sustainability of these proven programs in the aging and disability network.
The new Falls Prevention grantees will reach approximately 18,000 older adults and adults with disabilities with evidence-based programs to reduce falls and the risk of falling in order to safeguard their independence. Grantees are tasked with developing robust partnerships in delivering these programs while also pursuing their sustainability beyond the end of the grant period.
