CLOSED Notice of Funding Opportunity: State Public Health Approaches to Addressing Arthritis—CDC-RFA-DP-23-0001

State Public Health Approaches to Addressing Arthritis (CDC-RFA-DP-23-0001) is a notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for a 5-year, multi-component cooperative agreement to be supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Approximately $18,500,000 is available for funding. CDC anticipates awarding 6-10 awards of $200-300K under Component A (capacity and infrastructure building) and 5-7 awards of $375-550K under Component B (expansion and scaling up efforts). The cooperative agreement’s period of performance, or length, is 5 years, from July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2028.

This NOFO is to support dissemination of arthritis-appropriate, evidence-based interventions (AAEBIs) and implementation of referral pathways to increase AAEBI access and participation, increase the proportion of adults with arthritis who get counseling for physical activity, reduce health disparities, and improve health outcomes for adults with arthritis. NOFO activities will be accomplished through collaboration with key stakeholders, national and state initiatives, and CDC-funded programs in ways that support cross-referrals between interventions and help sustain activities beyond grant funding. Specific outcomes expected by the end of the project period are:

  • Increased AAEBI enrollment resulting from sustainable strategies.
  • Increased number of adults with arthritis who get provider counseling for physical activity.
  • Reduced disparities in arthritis management and outcomes among adults with arthritis.

Awardees will be announced after June 13, 2023. For more information, view the NOFO on
