Innovations in Nutrition Programs and Services - Research

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) - Administration for Community Living (ACL) - Administration on Aging (AoA)

Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #195310

Grant Description

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit, faith-based, and community-based organizations, IHEs, hospitals, and state, local, and tribal agencies for research projects to evaluate nutrition programs for the elderly. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support research and documentation of innovative and promising practices and policies, including those that have emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic, that have the potential to enhance the quality, effectiveness, and proven outcomes of nutrition services programs within the aging services network.

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. Research projects proposed under this grant program must have the potential for broad implementation throughout the aging services network and have demonstrated value, i.e., improvements in participant well-being, cost savings, etc. Research innovations must target services to underserved older adults with 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.

The purposes of the Older Americans Act (OAA) Title III-C Senior Nutrition Program (SNP) are to: a) reduce hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition, b) promote socialization, and c) enhance health and well-being by delaying the onset of adverse health conditions resulting from poor nutritional health or sedentary behavior by assisting individuals in gaining access to nutrition and other disease prevention and health promotion services. Services target older adults who are low-income, minority, rural, those with limited English proficiency and those at risk for institutionalization.

More information about eligible services can be found on page 4 of the FOA. See Attached Files, below.

Due Date for Letter Of Intent 01/03/2023: Applicants are requested, but not required, to submit a letter of intent to apply for this funding opportunity to assist ACL in planning for the application independent review process.

Under this ACL program, ACL will fund no more than 75% of the project’s total cost, which means the applicant must cover at least 25% of the project’s total cost with non-federal resources. In other words, for every three (3) dollars received in federal funding, the applicant must contribute at least one (1) dollar in non-federal resources toward the project’s total cost. This “three-to-one” ratio is reflected in the formula included under Item 18 in the “Instructions for Completing Requested Forms.” You can use this formula to calculate your minimum required match. A common error applicants make is to match 25% of the federal share, rather than 25% of the project’s total cost.

All applicants must have a UEI and be registered with the System for Award Management (SAM, and maintain an active SAM registration until the application process is complete, and should a grant be made, throughout the life of the award.
