Submit Proposals to AAAs for Older Americans Act Funding
On July 21, 2021 by Roni Falck
Many of the state's Area Agencies on Aging are hosting competitive requests for proposals (RFPs) seeking community partners to implement programs funded through the Older Americans Act. Proposals will support services in the calendar year 2022 for Supportive Services (Title III-B) and Evidence-Based Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (Title III-D).
A summary of those program areas can be found below. Trellis, the Area Agency on Aging for the seven-county metropolitan area, will offer an informational webinar on Thursday, July 22 at 12:30 p.m. for those interested in learning more. Contact your local Area Agency on Aging for more information and application support.
Supportive Services (Title III-B)
These services cover things such as home improvements, help with chores in or outside of the home or apartment and delivery of grocery items to make it easier for older adults to age at home in their community. These services also include providing information, social connection, and nutrition education to individuals and groups, with a focus on reaching older adults who would otherwise face language or cultural barriers to services.
Evidence-Based Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (Title III-D)
Providers of this service offer evidence-based programs to educate older adults and caregivers about chronic diseases and provide prevention-focused public health on topics like reducing falls, managing chronic pain, weight loss and stress management.
