CDC 2019 State, Local, and Tribal Grantees Map

The map below shows the states and communities funded through CDC’s Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke – State Programs and other Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) programs managed by CDC’s DHDSP  Program Development and Services Branch.

Text description of this map.

A map of the United States depicting states and tribal organizations that received fiscal year 2019 funding from the Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) program. Twenty-one states received WISEWOMAN funding, including Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington State, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Organizations in seven states (Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania) received Innovation Funding. Three tribal organizations received funding, including the Southcentral Foundation (SCF) and Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) in Alaska and the Native American Rehabilitation Association in Oregon.

The WISEWOMAN (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation) program serves low-income, uninsured, and underinsured women aged 40 to 64 years. CDC provides funding to WISEWOMAN programs in 21 states and 3 tribal organizations to enable qualifying women to receive free screenings and counseling about their risk for heart disease and stroke. Organizations in 7 states also received Innovation funding in 2019. The program operates in states and tribal organizations that participate in the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), which helps ensure women participating in the NBCCEDP receive a full range of health services. Women participate in evidence-based lifestyle programs, receive individual health coaching, or are referred to other community resources. The services provided by each WISEWOMAN program vary, but all are designed to promote lifelong heart-healthy lifestyle changes.

With support from CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, the YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) has developed an evidence-based Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring program that empowers adults with high blood pressure to take control of their hypertension through regular blood pressure self-monitoring and other heart healthy activities. The Y-USA’s Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring program focuses on regulated home self-monitoring of one’s blood pressure using proper measuring techniques, individualized support, and nutrition education for better blood pressure management. With support from a trained Healthy Heart Ambassador, participants measure and record their blood pressure at least two times per month, attend two personalized consultations per month, and attend monthly Nutrition Education Seminars.

Through the Mississippi Delta Health Collaborative (MDHC), the Mississippi State Department of Health leads a coordinated effort to improve heart disease and stroke care within the 18-county Delta region. In alignment with CDC and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, MDHC strives to:

  • Enhance collaboration and partnerships at all levels.
  • Implement evidence- and population-based interventions in clinical and community settings.
  • Increase awareness of high blood pressure, disease management, early recognition, and response to acute events.
  • Impact policies to support healthy behaviors in community, faith, and clinical settings.

Four major evidence-based interventions implemented are:

  • Clinical Community Health Worker Initiative.
  • Medication Therapy Management.
  • Policy, Systems, and Environmental Change through Mayoral Health Councils.
  • Hypertension Risk Reduction Screening and Provider Referral in Partnership with Congregational Health Nurses, Community Health Workers, and Barbers.

With support from CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), and participating state teams created and refined a new systems change model for public health. The Collaborative engaged minds across state and local communities— including public health agencies, health care, quality improvement organizations, health information technology experts, payers, and community-based organizations—to develop, expand, and sustain efforts to improve hypertension prevention, detection, and control.

Using this interrelated model, and building on lessons learned from CDC-funded efforts nationwide to prevent heart disease and stroke, states made extraordinary progress toward improved hypertension prevention, detection, and control. This integrated approach sparked a system-wide effort and set the bar for how state public health can help prevent and control hypertension, as well as other chronic disease areas.

ASTHO brought state teams together to share insights and tools to help strengthen and transform blood pressure control across the nation. In each year, the collaborative evolved to expand its reach and impact.

ASTHO currently includes 22 states (Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin), the District of Columbia, the Eastern Aleutian Tribes of Alaska, the US Virgin Islands, the Republic of Palau, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).
