The Center for Healthy Aging encourages and assists community-based organizations serving older adults to develop and implement evidence-based health promotion/ disease prevention programs. Evidence-based programming translates tested program models or interventions into practical, effective community programs that can provide proven health benefits to participants.


The Administration on Aging (AoA), funded under the Older Americans Act, provides services and programs to older persons and their caregivers to help older adults to enhance their health, remain independent,  and involved in their communities. The Behavioral Health Section describes various evidence-based programs and provides an array of resources, including numerous Issue Briefs and State Behavioral Health Profiles. AoA also offers grants to fund state initiatives to support evidence-based health promotion programs.    


The Administration for Community Living (ACL) represents and advocates for individuals with disabilities and older adults to ensure that they are represented and directly involved in the development and implementation of policies, programs, and regulations related to community living.   


The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health accross the life span and to reduce the impact  of  substance abuse and mental illnesses by improving the quality and availability of prevention, treatment and rehabilitative services .
