State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease and Stroke – financed solely by Prevention and Public Health Funds - CDC-RFA-DP14-1422PPHF14

May 29, 2014 Applicant Call Script


This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports implementation of population-wide and priority population approaches to prevent obesity, diabetes, and heart disease and stroke and reduce health disparities in these areas among adults.

There are two components to this FOA and applicants must address both components. 

  • Component 1 is to support environmental and system approaches to promote health, support and reinforce healthful behaviors, and build support for lifestyle improvements for the general population and particularly for those at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes and for those with uncontrolled high blood pressure. Populations at high risk for type 2 diabetes include those with prediabetes or those who have a sufficient number of risk factors on evidence-based risk tests that put them in a high risk category. 
  • Component 2 will support health system interventions and community-clinical linkages that focus on the general population and priority populations with uncontrolled high blood pressure or at high risk for type 2 diabetes who experience racial/ethnic or socioeconomic disparities, including inadequate access to care, poor quality of care, or low income. 

Component 1 environmental strategies will be implemented in the same communities and jurisdictions as Component 2 health system and community-clinical linkage strategies, with local improvements supported by statewide efforts funded by this FOA as well as those supported by DP13-1305 State Public Health Actions. Both components focus on the adult population.

The four-year project is expected to begin on September 30, 2014.


Eligible Applicants:

Government Organizations:

  • State health departments or their bona fide agents (includes the District of Columbia)
  • Large city health departments or their bona fide agents, with populations of at least 900,000 (using July 2012 U.S. Census Estimates)

Special Eligibility Requirements:

Large city applicants must work in partnership with and provide a letter of support from the state department of health or its bona fide agent documenting activities proposed in this FOA are being coordinated with the state’s DP13-1305 activities.
