Social Determinants of Health Community Pilots

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded funds to the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO) to assess the work of multi-sectors coalitions to advance health equity by addressing social determinants of health (SDoH).

These community health pilots seek to identify and learn from multisector coalitions with demonstrated success addressing the SDoH in one or more of five domains:

  • Built environment
  • Community-clinical linkages
  • Food Insecurity
  • Social connectedness
  • Tobacco-free policies

In order to build the evidence base for collaborative approaches to SDoH, the project will evaluate the impact of the coalitions’ recent SDoH experience and highlight successful strategies.

CDC awarded funds to ASTHO and the NACCHO to lead this project through the Strengthening Public Health Systems and Services Through National Partnerships (CDC-RFA-OT18-1802) cooperative agreement.

Fifty community multisector partnerships or coalitions will be awarded up to $50,000 to participate in a retrospective evaluation to understand progress to date and document outcomes and lessons learned.

ASTHO and NACCHO have released a request for proposals. The response deadline is December 8, 2020.
