Funding is available for activities and events that enhance access to information and health care resources that promote the safety and health of older women (i.e., women over 50) in the United States and its affiliated territories. Community-based partnerships and collaborations are strongly encouraged. Activities that educate health professionals on issues related to older women are also strongly encouraged. Proposed activities should focus on ONE of the following three general topic areas: preventive and behavioral health (such as chronic disease self-management, cardiovascular disease and/or heart attack symptoms in women, and oral health in older women); abuse in older adults (including, but not limited to, interpersonal and domestic violence prevention, elder rights protection, and trauma); or caregiving (including older women’s role as caregivers for spouses or parents, and/or as guardians for children/grandchildren). Projects will be funded up to a maximum amount of $2,500.
