(A) Sustainable Systems Grants:
approximately six grants of $400,000 to $600,00 focused on developing integrated, sustainable systems for delivering falls prevention programs; (B) Capacity-Building Grants:
approximately four grants of $50,000 to $150,000 to build capacity to introduce and deliver falls prevention programs within underserved areas and/or populations.

Additional Information of Eligibility:
To help ensure a wider geographic reach, it is unlikely that more than one applicant per state will be funded within each funding option.

Current or previous ACL Fall Prevention grantees are not excluded from this funding opportunity, but must note previous funding in their application and provide a strong rationale for the need for additional funding, which must include significant enhancement of the evidence-based prevention program network developed with prior funding, expansion of the program to geographic areas where the particular program(s) are not currently offered, and/or a focus on reaching a different target population.
