The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support research and documentation of innovative and promising practices, including those that have emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic, 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. 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.
