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.
