The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support organizations to reduce falls and/or falls risk among older adults and adults with disabilities in their community through the implementation of evidence-based falls prevention programs, focusing on those older adults in underserved areas/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 4 to 6 cooperative agreements with a four-year (48-month) project period, subject to the availabilty 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 falls prevention programs to empower them to reduce falls and/or their risk of falls. Goal 2: Identify and implement one or more robust strategies that will promote the sustainability of evidence-based falls prevention programs.
