City of Albuquerque: Area Agency on Aging

Deadline: November 8, 2019

The City of Albuquerque Department of Family and Community Services has established a priority to fund projects that lead to improved outcomes so seniors are able to age with dignity. This involves a focus on addressing the social determinants of health to achieve greater well-being and equity for all. Substantial evidence confirms the link between social, economic, and physical conditions and health outcome disparities. Social determinants of health include access to healthcare services, availability of services to support housing and behavioral health stability, lifelong education options, public safety, and social services.

The City’s desired outcome is that seniors are able to age with dignity:

  • Vulnerable seniors access and utilize the appropriate care and support resources of their choice so they age in place and maintain their health, safety, independence, and dignity
  • Seniors maintain connection to their community and access services that support their health and well-being

Indicators of progress during the service period may include:

  • Increased/maintained access to home-based services and supports to age in place
  • Reduced/maintained nutritional risk score
  • Engage with community services, social events, and educational opportunities

In order to effectively address these service needs, offerors must demonstrate a connection between the proposed activities and outputs to the identified outcomes, and define metrics and measurement tools to reliably assess progress toward achieving the identified outcomes.
