SDOH accelerator plans are required to focus on at least two of the NCCDPHP SDOH Domains.

Since 2021, the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) has funded 71 recipients to develop multisector, implementation-ready Accelerator Plans to address social determinants of health (SDOH).

  • 2023-2024: 15 recipients (CDC-RFA-DP23-0077)
  • 2022-2023: 36 recipients (CDC-RFA-DP22-2210)
  • 2021-2022: 20 recipients (CDC-RFA-DP21-2111)

The purpose of the Plan is to accelerate action in state, local, territorial, and tribal jurisdictions that lead to improved chronic disease outcomes among persons experiencing health disparities and inequities. Policy, system, environmental (PSE), and programmatic changes can improve SDOH in communities with the poorest health outcomes through community health assessment and long-term planning.
