Notice of Funding Opportunity: Closing the Gap with Social Determinants of Health Accelerator Plans CDC-RFA-DP22-2210

Deadline for Applications: July 8, 2022 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of funds to develop multisector action plans to address social determinants of health (SDOH). The purpose of the NOFO 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.

Collaborative planning among public health, government, business, non-profit organization, and healthcare partners is essential for addressing SDOH. Through community health assessment and long-range planning, policy, system, environmental, and programmatic changes can improve SDOH in communities with the poorest health outcomes.

Approximately 40 applicants will be funded to collaborate with multisectoral partners to develop implementation-ready SDOH Accelerator Plans to reduce disparities in health outcomes related to chronic disease within a state, local, territorial, and tribal jurisdiction, community, or catchment area. A community within the state could be defined as a city, county, parish, or jurisdiction/sub-jurisdiction. Catchment areas are defined in this NOFO as a county, metropolitan statistical area(s) or a group of contiguous counties.
Applicants must be physically located and operate in the state, tribe, locality, or territory for which work is proposed. At least one territory and at least two tribes will be funded. At least three (3) recipients per Health and Human Services (HHS) region will be funded. Awards will be up to $125,000 each.

CDC held an information call on June 9, 2022 at 3:00 PM Eastern Time for those interested in submitting an application. Review the call.

A letter of intent (LOI) is optional. Applicants should indicate where they are physically located and the community they are proposing to work in.
