CDC community health funding opportunities


May 27, 2014

 

In recent days, CDC has posted three Funding Opportunity Announcements relating to community health and chronic disease prevention.  Two themes with potential transportation connections are: (1) increasing physical activity (active transportation and recreation); and (2) improving access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and management opportunities, and with the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) project a focus on reducing health disparities (Ladders of Opportunity).  The Partnership to Improve Community Health (PICH) initiative replaces the Community Transformation Grant (CTG) program, and you’ll notice below that local transportation authorities are eligible to apply.  CDC will be holding information conference calls for potential applicants tomorrow (for PICH) and Friday (separate calls for REACH and the National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention).  Additional details are provided below, on CDC’s website (see links below), and on www.grants.gov.

 

 

(DP14-1417) Partnership to Improve Community Health

Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) will fund and support a new 3-year, $50 million/year initiative to improve health and reduce the burden of chronic diseases through evidence- and practice-based strategies to create or strengthen healthy environments that make it easier for people to make healthy choices and take charge of their health. An estimated 30 to 40 cooperative agreements will be awarded to governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations to work through multi-sectoral community coalitions consisting of businesses, schools, non-profit organizations, local health departments, health care organizations, community planning agencies, local housing authorities, social service agencies, agricultural extension programs, civic organizations, park and recreation departments, faith-based institutions, and other community-based organizations. Awardees will work to reduce tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, and improve access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and management opportunities. Projects will serve three types of geographic areas: large cities and urban counties, small cities and counties, and American Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages.

(DP14-1418) National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention

This 3-year,  $10 million/year initiative will support four to eight national organizations and their chapters/affiliates in building and strengthening community infrastructure to implement population-based strategies to improve the health of communities. Awardees will work with smaller communities and those with limited public health capacity to reduce tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, and improve access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and management opportunities. Additionally, awardees will work closely together to coordinate strategies and technical assistance to maximize their collective impact. The initiative will fund two types of projects: community capacity building and implementation awards, aimed at supporting locally driven planning and action among selected chapters/affiliates; and dissemination and training awards, aimed at providing tools and trainings to support funded chapters/affiliates and their community coalitions in improving local policies, systems, and environments.

(DP14-1419PPHF14) Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH)
Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health, or REACH, focuses on racial and ethnic communities experiencing health disparities. This 3-year, $35 million/year project will support policy, system, and environmental improvements in those communities to improve health and reduce health disparities. Awardees will include local governmental agencies, community based non-governmental organizations, American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages, tribal organizations, Urban Indian Health Programs, and tribal and intertribal consortia. They will work to reduce tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, and improve access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and management opportunities. An estimated 15 to 20 organizations will be funded for basic implementation activities to strengthen their infrastructure, activate coalitions and partners, and prepare and implement a focused community action plan. An additional 30 to 40 organizations will receive comprehensive awards to support immediate implementation of activities addressing an expanded scope of work to improve health and reduce health disparities.
