State Arthritis FOA now available on

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 22, 2012

The CDC's Division of Population Health and the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion announced the release this week of the state arthritis Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and wanted to take this opportunity to encourage state health departments to apply.

The purpose of State Public Health Approaches to Improving Arthritis Outcomes FOA is to build, support, and enhance state arthritis programs to substantially expand the access, availability, and use of evidence-based interventions that are appropriate for arthritis. Specifically, the intent of this funding opportunity is to implement strategies and other activities that embed evidence-based interventions into multi-site delivery systems, conduct surveillance and use data to inform decision making, and promote health equity.

The closing date for applications is May 16, 2012, and they expect to make 10 to 18 awards ranging from $200,000 to $500,000. Estimated total program funding for this five-year cooperative agreement is $35,000,000

The full announcement is available online.
