In 2019, CHEER, an organization which provides a full range of services for mature adults, including meals on wheels and congregate meals as part of the Older American’s Act (OAA) Title III Nutrition project, was awarded a grant from the Administration for Community Living to develop a wellness benefit program for home delivered meal recipients. The grant-funded innovation program titled “Innovative Title III Senior Healthcare Program” represents a partnership between CHEER, Education, Health, & Research International (EHRI), the Delaware Division of Services for the Aged and Adults with Physical Disabilities (DSAAPD), LaRed Health Center (a federally qualified health center), Highmark Delaware, and the University of Delaware.
