Fidelity Evaluation of ACL’s Evidence-Based Programs

December 27, 2022

Evidence-based Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Program Evaluation

ACL has released the findings of an evaluation of its evidence-based health promotion and disease prevention programs. Since 2012, Older Americans Act Title III-D (Preventative Health Services) and Title IV [Falls Prevention and Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME)] grantees have been required to deliver evidence-based programs (EBPs) — that is, programs proven to improve health and well-being and reduce disease and injury.

ACL is charged with monitoring and evaluating the extent to which these grantees are meeting their goals, including but not limited to ensuring grantees deliver EBPs as intended. Therefore, the purpose of ACL's evaluation was to:

  • Examine the fidelity with which ACL grantees implement EBPs.
  • Examine strategies ACL has been using to monitor and promote program fidelity.
  • Identify opportunities to enhance processes and technical assistance.

ACL encourages program developers, funders, grantees, and local delivery organizations to tailor and apply these learnings, practices, and tools in their communities.
