HHS/AoA Atlantic Philanthropies grants

Public-Private Collaborative Announces Program to Empower Older People to Take More Control of Their Health

Deadline August 31, 2006

The United States Department of Health and Human Services ( www.hhs.gov/ ) has announced a $15 million collaboration with Atlantic Philanthropies (http://atlanticphilanthropies.org/) to improve the health and quality of life for older Americans at the community level.

Led by the Administration on Aging ( http://www.aoa.gov ), the partnership is designed to empower older people to take more control of their own health through life style and behavioral changes that have proven effective in reducing the risk of disease and disability among the elderly.

  • .
  • HHS will support efforts in up to twelve states to mobilize public/private partnerships that support the delivery of evidence-based programs for seniors at the community level through nonprofit aging services provider organizations such as senior centers, nutrition programs, senior housing projects, and faith-based organizations. AoA plans to fund up to twelve cooperative agreements totaling up to $300,000 per project, per annum, for a three-year period, subject to the availability of funds. A 25 percent match will be required.

    State Aging Agencies and State Health Departments may apply for these grants. Only one application may be submitted by a state.

  • .
  • In addition, through a grant of up to $5 million to the Center for Healthy Aging, Atlantic Philanthropies will provide additional financial support and technical assistance in up to five states that show significant potential in developing systems to reach large numbers of older adults. A separate application and selection process will be used for these awards.

    For more information and the program announcement (“Empowering Older People to Take More Control of Their Health Through Evidence-Based Prevention Programs A Public/Private Partnership Grants Program”), see the AoA Web site.
