Who is eligible to apply/benefit from this assistance?
Applicant Eligibility
Eligible applicants that can apply for this funding opportunity are national organizations whose primary focus is on health education, chronic disease prevention and health promotion, and related public health training and who are of the type listed below:
National organizations that work specifically with state and territorial health departments and that have organizational units focusing on state-based public health issues and reducing chronic diseases and their associated risk factors, are uniquely qualified to successfully implement the activities of this FOA because they have the knowledge, experience, and skills in working on reducing the burden of chronic diseases and on implementing policy, systems, and environmental changes that address chronic disease risk factors in states and community settings that no other national organization entities have. Focusing on these types of national organizations provides CDC the greatest potential to successfully implement the activities of this FOA. National organizations with health departments as their members are uniquely qualified to respond to the burden of chronic diseases in their communities through their vast experience of continuous implementation of evidence – and practice-based interventions, implementation of self-management educational activities, and having the local, state, and territorial public health infrastructure in place to provide the proper foundation and support for programs that focus on reducing the chronic disease burden across the nation.
Beneficiary Eligibility
This cooperative agreement will support the development of effective state chronic disease prevention and health promotion programs through cross-cutting activities supportive of all chronic disease programs. This FOA will serve to improve the effectiveness of chronic disease prevention and health promotion programs by focusing on cross-cutting activities that are supportive of all Chronic Disease Programs; better identify major components/priority areas based on the needs of the NCCDPHP that will serve as the core functions; increase the effectiveness of CDC’s work with state chronic disease programs, so that work with state programs is more effective; and to experience the collective benefit of having strong state chronic disease programs by allowing for better coordination of efforts and greater utilization of resources, increase efficiency and minimize duplication of efforts.
