Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) CDC-RFA-DP18-1813: Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH)

 
CDC announced the availability of fiscal year 2018 funds to implement CDC-RFA-DP18-1813: Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH). This five-year program will provide funding to communities to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, and reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic populations with the highest risk, or burden, of chronic disease (i.e., hypertension, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity). The tools to accomplish this are:

  • Supporting the use of culturally tailored interventions to address preventable risk behaviors (tobacco use, poor nutrition and physical inactivity),
  • Linking community and clinical efforts to increase access to health care and preventive care programs at the community level,
  • Supporting implementation, evaluation and dissemination of practice- and evidence-based strategies related to tobacco, nutrition, physical activity,
  • Community-clinical linkages that ultimately lead to reduced health disparities in chronic conditions of hypertension, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity.
Additional information about this NOFO is available at this website. Questions may be submitted to REACH1813@cdc.gov.
