2. Evidence-Based Falls Prevention Programs Financed Solely by 2017 Prevention and Health Funds (PPHF-2017) – Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) forecasts the possible availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 funds to make three-year grants to approximately 6-8 entities to bring to scale and sustain evidence-based falls prevention programs that will reduce the number of falls, fear of falling, and fall-related injuries in older adults and adults with disabilities.

1. Empowering Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities through Chronic Disease Self-Management Education Programs Financed Solely by 2017 Prevention and Public Health Funds (PPHF-2017) – HHS

Similar to the above opportunity, this ACL funding is to empower older adults and adults with disabilities to better manage their chronic conditions. The primary goal is to significantly increase the number of older adults and adults with disabilities who participate in evidence-based self-management programs to empower them to better manage their chronic conditions.

The second goal is to implement innovative funding arrangements (e.g. contracts with integrated health care systems) to support the programs beyond the grant period, while embedding the programs into an integrated, sustainable evidence-based prevention program network.
