Disability and Health State Programs (2016 – 2021)
Previously Funded State Disability and Health Programs
Cooperative Agreement CDC-RFA-DD16-1603: Improving the Health of People with Mobility Limitations and Intellectual Disabilities through State-based Public Health Programs
CDC would like to thank the State Disability and Health Programs from the 2016 – 2021 funding cycle for their work to improve the health and quality of life among people with disabilities. In this time period, these programs adapted and implemented evidence-based strategies in their communities to
- Improve knowledge and awareness about the usefulness and effectiveness of programmatic, policy, systems, and environmental changes for people with select functional disability types (i.e., mobility limitations and/or intellectual disabilities), and
- Support programs to plan, implement, evaluate, and disseminate non-research activities aimed at promoting inclusion and accessibility and reducing health disparities between people with and without disabilities.
Please visit the presentations linked below to learn more about project successes achieved by each State Disability and Health Program during the 2016 – 2021 funding cycle.
*Projects that are ongoing beyond the 2016 – 2021 funding cycle are continuing activities under a No Cost Extension.
