Decreased resources and changing priorities among funders are challenging community-based organizations to become more creative in how they sustain their evidence-based healthy aging programs. While significant attention has focused on integration with healthcare systems to provide this source of sustainability, what is needed is a more global and diverse approach—one that includes advocacy at multiple levels and involves program developers, community organizations and newly empowered participants who have benefited from programs. In this web seminar, the Evidence-Based Leadership Council, a national collaborative of program developers and community implementers, shares its experiences and successes with scaling and sustaining programs through partnerships, community outreach and strategic steps towards policy change.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

•  Identify three benefits to partnering with program developers in long-term sustainability efforts;

•  List three ways to engage newly empowered participants in future program efforts; and,

•  Identify three solutions to the challenges of partnering with community organizations.
