ACL just released a new funding opportunity for the aging services network. This opportunity supports the testing and documentation of innovative and promising practices that enhance the quality, effectiveness, and proven outcomes of nutrition services programs.
Innovations could include a nutrition effort combined with addressing a local or national need such as: reducing falls; improving chronic conditions; improving oral health; increasing social connections; reaching OAA target populations; decreasing anxiety, depression, emotional disturbances or suicide; improving overall physical and mental health symptoms; and increasing activity involvement.
Approaches must have the potential for broad implementation throughout the network and demonstrated value. Examples of value could be cost savings or addressing a national need. Applicants must explain how they see their proposal as innovative, how broad implementation can be done, and the potential effect on the network.
ACL plans to award approximately four cooperative agreements to domestic public or private non-profit entities for a 24-month project period. Applicants may request a total maximum of $250,000 for each of the two 12-month budget periods.
An informational call for interested applicants will be held on June 12, 2018 at 2:00 pm, ET. To register for this call, go to https://www.mymeetings.com/emeet/rsvp/index.jsp?customHeader=mymeetings&Conference_ID=7527433&passcode=4010154
This Funding Opportunity closes on July 17, 2018.
