PPHF 2014 Diabetes Prevention and Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program: A Comprehensive Approach to Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country (DP14-1421PPHF14)

Application Deadline: July 22, 2014, 11:59 pm
CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion has published a new 5-year, $14 million/year initiative that aims to prevent heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and associated risk factors in American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages through a holistic approach to population health and wellness. The initiative will support efforts by American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages to implement a variety of effective community-chosen and culturally adapted policies, systems, and environmental changes. These changes will aim to reduce commercial tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition and physical activity, increase support for breastfeeding, increase health literacy, and strengthen team-based care and community-clinical links. Funds will support approximately 12 American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages directly and approximately 12 Tribal Organizations (one of each in each of 12 IHS administrative areas) to provide leadership, technical assistance, training, and resources to American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages within their IHS Administrative Areas. Applications will be accepted through until July 22, 2014. See the full announcement for more information.
