2023 Empowering Communities to Deliver and Sustain Evidence-Based Falls Prevention Programs

The mission of the Administration for Community Living (ACL) is to maximize the independence, well-being, and health of older adults, people with disabilities across the lifespan, and their families and caregivers. Through this funding opportunity, the Administration on Aging (AoA), part of the Administration for Community Living (ACL), plans to award approximately 6 – 8 Cooperative Agreements to domestic public or private non-profit entities.

The intent of this funding opportunity is to support organizations to reduce falls and/or falls risk among older adults and adults with disabilities in their community through the implementation of evidence-based falls prevention programs, focusing on those older adults in underserved areas/populations, as defined by the Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.

This funding opportunity has two goals:

  • Goal 1: Develop capacity to increase the number of older adults and adults with disabilities who participate in evidence-based falls prevention programs to empower them to reduce falls and/or their risk of falls.
  • Goal 2: Identify and implement one or more robust strategies that will promote the sustainability of evidence-based falls prevention programs.
