The Aging and Disability Business Institute is now accepting nominations for The John A. Hartford Foundation 2020 Business Innovation Award.
Now in its fifth year, The John A. Hartford Foundation Business Innovation Award celebrates the successes of aging and disability community-based organizations (CBOs) that are partnering and contracting with health care entities to reduce health care costs and improve the well-being of older adults and people with disabilities. This award, presented by the Aging and Disability Business Institute, helps draw national attention to innovative approaches CBOs are taking to integrate health and social care as well as spur replication of these initiatives.
This year, the Business Institute is especially interested in recognizing innovations in CBO-health care contracting related to COVID-19 response or addressing health equity or health disparities.
Eligible recipients include aging and disability CBOs such as Area Agencies on Aging, Centers for Independent Living, faith-based organizations, and other nonprofit or government-based community-based aging and disability services providers. Award recipients will have demonstrated the use of bold, transformative strategies to integrate health care and long-term services and supports and increase their sustainability.
Winners will be recognized during the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging’s Virtual Conference and Tradeshow, taking place September 21-24, and will receive a plaque and monetary award of up to $5,000.
Nominations are set to close July 31, 2020, so be sure to submit your nominations soon!
