FY 2014 FOA State Contact Information

CDC has announced new funding awards, supported in part by the Affordable Care Act, to all 50 states and D.C. to support cross-cutting programs to prevent and control chronic diseases—the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Chronic diseases are responsible for 7 of 10 deaths among Americans each year, and they account for 86% of our nation’s health care costs, which in 2013 totaled $2.9 trillion.

In all, 193 awards totaling nearly $212 million (first-year funding) are going to states, large and small cities and counties, tribes and tribal organizations, and national and community organizations. The grants are organized into six programs that focus on populations hardest hit by chronic diseases.

The programs involve partnerships at the national, state, and/or local levels because public health cannot solve these problems alone. Awardees will coordinate prevention activities to achieve three overall goals:

  • Reduce rates of death and disability due to tobacco use.
  • Reduce prevalence of obesity.
  • Reduce rates of death and disability due to diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

All six programs address one or more of the leading risk factors for chronic disease: tobacco use, poor nutrition, and physical inactivity. Some of the programs also address key health system improvements and community supports to help Americans manage chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and pre-diabetes.

This is one of many ways the Affordable Care Act is improving access to preventive care, and coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. Under the Affordable Care Act, 76 million Americans nationwide in private health insurance have gained access to preventive care services without cost-sharing and issuers can no longer deny coverage to anyone because of a pre-existing condition.
