Cooperative agreements with USA and Territories nonprofits, IHEs, hospitals, and state, local, and tribal agencies to evaluate nutrition programs for the elderly that were implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline.
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to verify the effectiveness of SNP innovative programs or practices implemented during COVID-19 that positively impact participants. Project goals and outcomes must relate to the OAA SNP intents (specifically: a) reduce hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition, b) promote socialization, and c) promote health and well-being by delaying the onset of adverse health conditions, through the provision of meals and associated nutrition services to vulnerable older adults who are in greatest social and economic need.). Proposed projects must have strong potential for replication by the aging services network and sustainability using OAA Title IIIC-1 funding.
Applications should include approaches for measuring the effectiveness of innovative programs or practices that support transitioning to and sustaining congregate meal programs and delivering impactful nutrition education. Examples of potential program ideas are listed below (not an exclusive list, offered for context):
Applicants’ proposals must focus on creating partnerships between Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), or other research organizations in collaboration with aging services network organizations to test innovative programs or practices for the SNP. Testing and evaluating efforts should focus on enhancing the quality, effectiveness and sustainability of older adult nutrition programs services, in times of emergencies but also sustainable during non-emergency situations.
