Important things to know

REACH strategies aim to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, and reduce health disparities. Funded recipients work among racial and ethnic groups with the highest risk, or burden, of chronic disease.

The program's goal is to make healthy eating and active living more accessible and affordable to priority populations. REACH programs work specifically among people who are Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, Asian American, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, American Indian, and Alaska Natives.
