Grants for the Empowering Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities through Chronic Disease Self-Management Education Programs are now available for state units on aging and state public health departments.
Even though long term services and support providers cannot apply directly, they could possibly contract with their state departments of elderly affairs office.
The overall purpose of this funding from 2012 Prevention and Public Health Funds is to increase the number of older and/or disabled adults with chronic conditions who complete evidence-based Chronic Disease Self Management Education programs.
In addition, the grants hope to strengthen and expand integrated, sustainable service systems within states to provide these programs.
The grant requires that the organization implements or continues at least one type of evidence-based Chronic Disease Self Management Education program that focuses on improving the health outcomes of older and/or disabled adults with diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, HIV/AIDs, chronic pain, depression or other chronic condition.
Applicants may propose a Stanford model or another type of Chronic Disease Self Management Education program that meets the Administration on Aging's highest-level evidence-based criteria.
