State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (1305)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports statewide implementation of cross-cutting approaches to promote health and prevent and control chronic diseases and their risk factors. Four chronic disease prevention programs (Diabetes; Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention; Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity; and School Health) are included in this FOA. Collectively, these programs represent activities and intervention strategies that draw from each of the four chronic disease domains. For information on the Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Domains, see below.

There are two components to this FOA. The first is a non-competitive basiccomponent that will be awarded to all 50 states and the District of Columbia if they submit a technically acceptable application. The second is a competitive enhancedcomponent that will provide funding for up to 25 states. All states and the District of Columbia are eligible to apply for the competitive enhanced component. The enhanced component will be objectively reviewed and scored.

The five-year project is expected to begin on July 1, 2013.


Work Plan and Budget Templates – 1305 Supplement

Work Plan [XLS–20K] | Budget [XLS–20K]

The Budget and Work Plan Templates posted on this page may be used by grantees in completing their applications for the State Public Health Actions (1305) Supplement. (Note: A detailed work plan is not due until 45 days after receipt of the Notice of Award; however, a budget should be included with the applications that are due on August 14.)

The Budget Template is based on the same format that has been used for 1305 thus far, but it has been customized to align with the Diabetes and Heart Disease and Stroke funding that supports the Supplement. One key difference is that grantees must populate their own target funding. Grantees may enter their target funding in the Template by following these simple steps:

  1. Access the total amount of supplemental funding allocated to your state (see page 6 of the announcement available on
  2. Divide the total amount in half, allocating 50% to Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention and 50% to Diabetes.
  3. Enter those amounts into the yellow cells in the table pictured below, which is located under the “Budget Reports” tab of your Template. From there, the Template will populate your target ceiling amounts. (Note: You must click on "Enable Editing" when you first open the Template in order to begin entering information.)
