This funding opportunity is designed for applicants to propose how they will develop capacity for, deliver, and sustain evidence-based self-management education and support programs among older adults and adults with disabilities. Applicants must target those with the greatest social determinants of health needs in areas where programs do not currently exist, as well as underserved areas and populations as defined by the Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. The Administration on Aging (AoA), part of the Administration for Community Living (ACL), plans to award 7 to 8 cooperative agreements with a four-year (48-month) project period, subject to the availability of funds. The two primary goals are: Goal 1: Develop capacity to increase the number of older adults and adults with disabilities who participate in evidence-based self-management education and self-management support programs to empower them to better manage their chronic conditions. Goal 2: Identify and implement one or more robust strategies that will promote the sustainability of evidence-based self-management education and self-management support programs.
