The mission of the Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) program is to empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education.
SMP program seeks to empower beneficiaries through increased awareness and understanding of health care programs to protect them from the economic and health-related consequences associated with Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse.
ACL provides grant funding to support 54 SMP state-based projects, including grantees in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U. S. Virgin Islands, and Guam.
With this funding opportunity, ACL is seeking applicants for a single cooperative agreement to operate the Senior Medicare Patrol National Resource Center (SMPNRC).
The SMPNRC will provide training, technical assistance, and promotional activities to support the SMP program and its 54 projects nationwide.
ACL anticipates awarding one (1) 5-year cooperative agreement at the federal funding level of $1,000,000 during the first year and $850,000 in each remaining year, pending availability of federal funds.
An informational teleconference will be held on Tuesday, April 14 at 3:30 pm (ET).
