State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease and Stroke (DP14-1422PPHF14)


group of people
  • 21 awards
  • $69.5 million

This program, building on efforts initiated in 2013, intensifies work in state and large city health departments to prevent obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke and reduce health disparities through community and health system interventions. It is financed by the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Affordable Care Act.

Each state will sub-award half of these funds to support prevention activities in four to eight communities. Community strategies will support community prevention strategies, focused particularly on those at high risk, to prevent diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Health system interventions and efforts to link community programs to clinical services will aim to improve health care and preventive services to populations with the largest disparities in high blood pressure and pre-diabetes.

Activities will complement but not duplicate those funded under the State Public Health Actions (DP13-1305) initiative. That state-level program began in 2013 with basic awards to all states and D.C. and enhanced awards to 32. With a separate $33 million in new 2014 funds, CDC is now supporting all states and D.C. at an enhanced level.
