Plan to join ACL for a webinar about the requirements and how to meet the evidence-based program requirements of the Older Americans Act Title IIID. The requirement to use Title IIID dollars for only the highest-level evidence based programs will go into effect nationally on October 1, 2016, though some states are implementing the change earlier.
Highest-level programs meet these criteria:
- Demonstrated through evaluation to be effective for improving health and well-being or reducing disease, disability, and/or injury among older adults; and
- Proven effective with older adult population, using Experimental or Quasi-Experimental Design; and
- Research results published in a peer-reviewed journal; and
- Fully translated in one or more community site(s); and
- Includes products for dissemination that are available to the public.
Listeners will hear presentations from states and AAAs who are meeting the requirements, and learn strategies for overcoming common challenges. Additional technical assistance resources will be shared.
