State Public Health Approaches to Addressing Arthritis— Award Recipients
CDC awarded funding to 12 states on July 1, 2023, as part of a 5-year, multi-component cooperative agreement program [CDC-RFA-DP-23-0001 State Public Health Approaches to Addressing Arthritis]. Awardees are using this funding to:
- Support the 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.
- Improve health outcomes for adults with arthritis.
Program activities will be accomplished through collaboration with key partners, national and state initiatives, and other CDC-funded programs in ways that support cross-referrals between interventions and help sustain activities beyond grant funding. Component A focuses on capacity and infrastructure building to support statewide AAEBI dissemination. Component B supports expansion and scaling up efforts statewide.
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.
Approximately $18.5 million is being awarded during the 5-year performance period which concludes on June 30, 2028. Component A recipients (6) are receiving an average funding of $225,000 each annually and Component B recipients (6) are receiving an average funding of $410,000 each annually.
