Join USAging and your peers for a members-only lunchtime webinar series that will provide an overview of innovative programs that received 2021 Aging Innovations Awards. Participants will hear from your peers on how they developed, implemented and sustained these programs within their agencies. Attendees will also receive tips on how to replicate these programs, with time for Q&A at the end. Learn more about the 2021 USAging Aging Innovations Award recipients at www.usaging.org/aia.

The first webinar in this series will highlight:

  • A transformative shift in the way funding is allocated, where community-based organizations collaborate to determine where funding most needs to go; developed by Seattle Human Services Department, Aging and Disability Services in Seattle, WA.
  • A nutrition program that takes a multi-pronged approach to ensure older adults who are food insecure and have chronic diseases get the nutrition they need; developed by San Francisco Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS), Office of Community Partnerships and Project Open Hand (a DAS provider) in San Francisco, CA.
