U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Empowering Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities through Chronic Disease Self-Management Education ProgramsDeadline: May 12, 2017
The Empowering Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities through Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) Programs funding opportunity is designed to deliver and sustain evidence-based self-management education programs that empower older adults and adults with disabilities from underserved areas and populations to better manage their chronic conditions. There are two major goals:
- Goal 1: Significantly increase the number of older adults and adults with disabilities in underserved areas and populations who participate in evidence-based self-management education and support programs to empower them to better manage their chronic conditions. Applicants must propose to deliver one or more CDSME programs. These programs must be on the list of pre-approved interventions (see Appendix B within the solicitation). In addition, applicants have the option of proposing one self-management support program as a secondary intervention. This program must be on the list of pre-approved interventions (see Appendix C within the solicitation).
- Goal 2: Implement innovative funding arrangements, including contracts and collaborations with one or more sustainability partners, to support evidence-based self-management education and support programs during and beyond the grant period. Additionally, embed programs into an integrated, sustainable evidence-based prevention program network via centralized, coordinated processes.
Amount: A total of $6,413,619 is available to award up to eight cooperative agreements ranging from $500,000-$900,000 per project year for up to three years. To help ensure a wider geographic reach, it is unlikely that more than one applicant per state will be funded.
Eligibility: Domestic public or private non-profit entities including state and local governments, Indian tribal governments and organizations, faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, hospitals, and institutions of higher education.
