Grantee Support

The National Council on Aging is funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living, Administration on Aging (through the FY 2013 Prevention and Public Health Fund) as the National Resource Center on Chronic Disease Self-Management Education Programs. The Center assists states, the aging, disability and public health networks and their partners increase access to and sustain evidence-based prevention programs that improve the health and quality of life of older adults and adults with disabilities.  It also serves as the national clearinghouse of tools and information on CDSME programs.

This project was supported, in part by grant number 90CR2001-01-00, from the U.S. Administration for Community Living, Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, D.C. 20201. Grantees undertaking projects under government sponsorship are encouraged to express freely their findings and conclusions. Points of view or opinions do not, therefore, necessarily represent official Administration for Community Living policy.


The Center produces issue briefs, case studies, fact sheets, and other periodic reports. The majority of these publications can be found in our Resource Library.

We also publish a monthly newsletter, the Center for Healthy Aging ENews, which provides timely news and information about the Center's activities and falls prevention. Subscribe here »
