DOH and NYSOFA Seeking Evidence-Based Programs and Innovative Models in Aging and Long Term Care

The Department of Health (DOH) and the New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) are soliciting proposals from organizations to learn more about evidence-based programs and other innovative models that are being used in aging and long term care.

The proposals will be presented and discussed at the second meeting of the Long Term Care Planning Project (LTCPP). The LTCPP is comprised of state, private, and not-for-profit leaders examining the long term care system and the projected needs of aging New Yorkers. LeadingAge NY and several of our members participate in this initiative, which involves a series of five meetings over the course of 2019.

The LTCPP will consider and discuss the proposals at its next meeting on May 13, 2019 in Meeting Room 6 on the Concourse of the Empire State Plaza in Albany from 1 to 4 p.m. The guiding principle of all discussions is to understand how evidence-based programs and other innovative models are working in aging and long term care.

Submissions must follow the proposal outline and contain:

  • a description of the evidence-based program or innovative model;
  • an evaluation of the evidence-based program or innovative model and its results; and
  • an explanation of the program or model’s effectiveness.

Proposals will be accepted for the following categories:

  • Care Transitions;
  • Technology;
  • Prevention, Wellness, and Chronic Disease Management; or
  • Other.

We encourage LeadingAge NY members to apply.

All proposals must be submitted to ALTCteam@health.ny.gov by Wed., April 17, 2019. If your proposal is accepted, you will be notified by April 29th and will be asked to prepare a 10-minute presentation on your program for the May 13, 2019 meeting. If your proposal is not accepted for presentation, you may be given the option to have your work included in a resource document for meeting participants.
