Administration for Community Living / Administration on Aging Falls Prevention 2016-2018 State Grantees

The Administration for Community Living has announced that two of their Evidence-Based Falls Prevention grants will go to organizations that are using the SAIL Program as part of their interventions to reduce falls in their communities. Marymount University Malek School of Health Professions, in partnership with Inova Health System, Goodwin House, and other key stakeholders, plans to build and maintain a regionally integrated Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Network to implement and sustain three evidence-based falls prevention programs. The SAIL Program is one of these three programs. Click here for more information about this grant. The Mescalero Apache Tribe plans to implement an outreach, education and engagement campaign focused on physical activity for adults 65+. The SAIL Program will be used as the evidence-based physical activity program. Click here for more information about this grant.
