U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Empowering Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities through Chronic Disease Self-Management Education ProgramsDeadline: April 6, 2016
This funding opportunity is designed to deliver and sustain evidence-based self-management education programs in the community that empower older adults and adults with disabilities from underserved areas and populations to better manage their chronic conditions. The cooperative agreements are intended to increase the number of community-based chronic disease self-management education program participants, while concurrently increasing the sustainability of these proven programs in the aging and disability networks through innovative funding arrangements and by embedding the programs into the nation’s health and long-term services and supports systems.
The successful applicant will be an organization that proposes only evidence-based programs (including at least one chronic disease self-management education [CDSME] program and, on an optional basis, one self-management support program) that are on the lists of pre-approved CDSME and self-management support programs in the RFP, or another CDSME or self-management support program that is considered to be “evidence-based” by any operating division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Amount: $8,000,000 is available for up to eight grants ranging from $500,000-$900,000 each.
Eligibility: Domestic public or private non-profit entities including state and local governments, Indian tribal governments and organizations (American Indian/Alaskan Native/Native American), faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, hospitals, and institutions of higher education.
To help ensure a wider geographic reach, it is unlikely that more than one applicant per state will be funded.
