Application for Recognition
CDC welcomes organizations that offer a lifestyle program to prevent type 2 diabetes to apply for recognition by the Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP), a component of the National Diabetes Prevention Program. The DPRP can help to assure consistent delivery of program elements across participating sites and provides evaluation, monitoring, and technical assistance for your program. Any organization with the capacity to deliver a lifestyle intervention meeting the DPRP standards may apply for recognition.
Before you apply, you should read the CDC Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program: Standards and Operating Procedures [PDF–498KB]. This document spells out the criteria for delivering lifestyle interventions that meet the standards for full recognition by the DPRP. The standards document also contains a capacity assessment—a list of six questions to ask about your organization’s readiness to participate in the national program. You are strongly encouraged to conduct this assessment. Answering those questions will help you decide if your organization has the resources to start and maintain lifestyle classes that fit the requirements for full recognition.
To apply for recognition, complete the form on this page. After you submit the application form, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. This e-mail will include instructions for submitting an alternative curriculum, if applicable.
If you are using the recommended National Diabetes Prevention Program Curriculum, DPRP staff will notify you by e-mail of the outcome of your application within 15 working days. If you are using an alternative curriculum, DPRP staff will review your alternative curriculum along with your application. In this case, DPRP staff will notify you by e-mail of the outcome of your application within 30 working days of receiving your curriculum.
If you have any questions about your application or the DPRP, please call the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s help line, CDC-Info. Contact information for CDC-Info is given on the right-hand side of this Web page. Please ask the help desk staff for information about applying to the Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program. You may also send an e-mail to the help desk with the subject line “Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program Application.”
