The Administration on Aging (AoA) within the Administration for Community Living (ACL), U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) forecasts the possible availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 funds to make three-year grants to approximately 10 entities 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.
ACL intends to compete these 10 grants via two options (both with 36-month grant periods):
(A) Sustainable Systems Grants:
approximately six grants of $500,000 to $900,000 focused on developing integrated, sustainable systems for delivering evidence-based chronic disease self-management education and self-management support programs.
(B) Capacity-Building Grants:
approximately four grants of $50,000 to $150,000 to build capacity to introduce and deliver evidence-based chronic disease self-management education and self-management support programs within underserved areas and/or populations.
