The National Council on Aging (NCOA) hosts a list of health promotion programs that meet ACL’s evidence-based program requirements for Older Americans Act Title III-D funding. This list is just a small part of the health promotion-related technical assistance NCOA offers to the network through their National Falls Prevention Resource Center and the National Chronic Disease Self-Management Education Resource Center. This list takes the guess work out of trying to find and implement a program that meets the III-D funding requirement.
Currently, a vetting initiative is underway to evaluate programs and add new evidence-based programs to this list! This vetting process is conducted regularly, in order to provide the network with current, relevant, and robust evidence-based programming options.
The University of North Carolina’s Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention is offering an opportunity for program developers to submit their programs for consideration to be added to this list. The team at the University of North Carolina has convened a Review Council of national leaders with expertise in aging programs, research, evaluation, and implementation. This independent Review Council evaluates the research base, implementation materials, and demonstrated health outcomes of programs that apply to the initiative.
The next round of reviews opens in May, with letters of intent requested by April 24.
