The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support projects that replicate successful models developed by Innovations in Nutrition Programs and Services grantees that have the potential that 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.
Projects proposed under this grant program must have the potential for broad implementation throughout the aging services network and have demonstrated value, such as improvements in participant well-being, cost savings, and more. Additionally, projects 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 avoiding the need for more costly medical interventions.
