2).

To implement innovative funding arrangements, including contracts, partnerships, and
collaborations with one or more sustainability partners (e.g., Accountable Care Organizations, Patient-Centered Medical Homes, large employer groups, health insurance plans, integrated health care entities, etc.) to support these evidence-based falls prevention programs in the aging network during and beyond the grant period, while embedding the programs into an integrated, sustainable evidence-based prevention program network.
