NASHVILLE, TN — The Administration for Community Living is pleased to announce the cohorts for the Chronic Disease Self-Management Education, or CDSME, and Falls Prevention grantees for 2021.

Grants will be awarded for projects that begin on May 1, 2021, and end on April 30, 2024.

Through evidence-based CDSME and self-management support programs, the new CDSME grantees will serve an estimated 14,000 older persons and adults with disabilities.

As part of the CDSME program, the cooperation agreements aim to increase the number of participants, address the behavioral and social determinants of health, and simultaneously improve the sustainability of these proven programs within the aging and disability network.

The new Falls Prevention grantees will reach approximately 18,000 older adults and adults with disabilities with evidence-based programs to reduce falls and the risk of falling in order to preserve their independence.

Grantees are expected to build strong collaborations in delivering these programs while also pursuing their long-term sustainability after the grant period has ended.
