New FOAs Announced!

Last week, CDC and others announced the availability of new funding opportunity announcements (FOAs). View all of them below.

New Release 6/3/14 - The final new anticipated community prevention funding opportunity announcement (FOA) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was released today.Programs to Reduce Obesity in High Obesity Areaswill provide approximately $4.7 million/year for three years for up to six land grant colleges and universities in countries with adult obesity rates over 40 percent to conduct intervention strategies. The application deadline is July 23rd, and an informational call is scheduled for Friday, June 5th, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. (EDT). The call in number is (888) 469-3092, and the participation code is 403 8410.

The following CDC FOAs were created to advance the nation’s chronic disease prevention and health promotion efforts.

  • All six FOAs address one or more of the leading risk factors for the major causes of death and disability in the United States: tobacco use, poor nutrition, and physical inactivity.
  • A number of the FOAs also address key health system improvements and community supports to help Americans manage their chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and pre-diabetes.
  • All the FOAs involve partnerships at the national, state, or local level because public health cannot solve these problems alone.

Through these FOAs, CDC is concentrating resources on key risk factors and major diseases that contribute substantially to suffering, disability, and premature death among Americans. Together, the six FOAs form a mutually reinforcing set of activities designed, in synergy, to reach the overall goals of reducing:

  • Rates of death and disability due to tobacco use by 5%.
  • Prevalence of obesity by 3%.
  • Rates of death and disability due to diabetes, heart disease, and stroke by 3%.

Individually, each FOA contributes uniquely to these goals by:

  • Working through unique awardees (e.g., state health departments, national organizations).
  • Delivering interventions to unique populations (e.g., racial and ethnic minorities, populations with very high obesity rates).
  • Emphasizing specific interventions (e.g., health system improvements, environmental approaches).
  • Implementing interventions in specific places (e.g., large cities, tribes).
  • Addressing specific risk factors, disease management, or both (e.g., tobacco use, obesity, high blood pressure).

(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.

(DP14-1422) State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes and Heart Disease

State and Local Public Health Actions a new 4-year, $70 million/year program that builds on efforts initiated in 2013, intensifies work in 18 to 22 state and large city health departments to prevent obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke and reduce health disparities among adults through a combination of community and health system interventions. States will sub-award half of their funds to support implementation activities in 4-8 communities in their states. Community strategies will build support for lifestyle change, particularly for those at high risk, to support diabetes and heart disease and stroke prevention efforts. Health system interventions and community-clinical linkage strategies will aim to improve the quality of health care delivery and preventive services to populations with the highest hypertension and pre-diabetes disparities. These efforts will be supported by state/jurisdiction-level leadership and coordination and technical assistance to selected communities. Activities will complement but not duplicate those funded under the State Public Health Actions (DP13-1305) initiative.

(DP14-1421PPHF14): A Comprehensive Approach to Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country

This 5-year, $14 million/year initiative aims to prevent heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and associated risk factors in American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages through a holistic approach to population health and wellness. The initiative will support efforts by American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages to implement a variety of effective community-chosen and culturally adapted policies, systems, and environmental changes. These changes will aim to reduce commercial tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition and physical activity, increase support for breastfeeding, increase health literacy, and strengthen team-based care and community-clinical links. Funds will support approximately 12 American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages directly and approximately 12 Tribal Organizations (one of each in each of 12 IHS administrative areas) to provide leadership, technical assistance, training, and resources to American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages within their IHS Administrative Areas.

(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.
