Innovations in Nutrition Programs and Services - Statewide Replication

Funding Agency:
Department of Health and Human Services

NOTE: This is a Forecasted Opportunity.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support projects which replicate a successful model developed by Innovations in Nutrition Programs and Services grantee that has the potential that enhance the quality, effectiveness and proven outcomes of nutrition services programs within the aging services network.  Examples of grantee projects are located at: https://acl.gov/senior-nutrition/looking-innovate.

The Older Americans Act (OAA) provides funding to States and Tribal Organizations to support a broad array of services that enable older adults to remain in their homes and communities and assist family and informal caregivers to care for their loved ones for as long as possible. Projects proposed under this grant program must have the potential for broad implementation throughout the aging services network and have demonstrated value, e.g., improvements in participant well-being, dietary intake, nutritional risk, etc. In addition, projects must target services to underserved older adults with the greatest social and economic need, and individuals at risk for institutional placement, to permit such individuals to remain in home and community-based settings thereby avoiding the need for more costly medical interventions.
