Department of Health and Human Services: Empowering Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities through Chronic Disease Self-Management Education ProgramsDeadline: January 29, 2019
This program will provide funding to develop capacity for, bring to scale, and sustain evidence-based programs that empower older adults and adults with disabilities to better manage their chronic conditions. Grants will be awarded via two options: (A) Sustainable Systems Grants: grants will focus on developing integrated, sustainable systems for delivering evidence-based chronic disease self-management education and self-management support programs; and (B) Capacity-Building Grants: grants will focus on building capacity to introduce and deliver evidence-based chronic disease self-management education and self-management support programs within underserved areas and/or populations.
Amount: Approximately $6,390,383 is available to make up to 10 grants. Applicants under the Capacity-Building option may request a total budget from $50,000 to $150,000 for the three-year project period. Applicants under the Sustainable Systems option may request a total budget from $500,000 to a maximum of $900,000 for the three-year project period.
Eligibility: State governments, county governments, city or township governments, and special district governments; independent school districts; public and state controlled institutions of higher education; Native American tribal governments and organizations; public housing authorities/Indian housing authorities; nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS; and private institutions of higher education.
To help ensure a wider geographic reach, it is unlikely that more than one applicant per state under each funding option (Capacity-Building and Sustainable Systems) will be funded.
