Assistance Programs for Chronic Disease Prevention and Control

To work with State health agencies and other public and private nonprofit organizations in planning, developing, integrating, coordinating, or evaluating programs to prevent and control chronic diseases; assist in monitoring the major behavioral risks associated with the 10 leading causes of premature

death and disability in the United States including cardiovascular diseases; and, establish new chronic disease prevention programs like Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH), State Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Programs (NPAO)

DP08-819/DP13-1317: Purpose - The purpose of the program is to 1) support community use of traditional foods and sustainable ecological approaches for diabetes prevention and health promotion in American Indian and Alaska Native communities; and 2) engage communities in identifying and sharing the stories of healthy traditional ways of eating, being active, and communicating health information and support for diabetes prevention and wellness.

CDC-RFA-DP13-1305, State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health, supports statewide implementation of cross-cutting approaches to promote health and prevent and control chronic diseases and their risk factors.

Four chronic disease prevention programs (Diabetes; Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention; Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity; and School Health) are included in this FOA.

State Health Departments are funded under this FOA to address the following goals:
Short/Intermediate Term Goals:
? Improve state, community, worksite, school, and early childhood environments to promote and reinforce healthful behaviors across the lifespan related to diabetes, cardiovascular health, physical activity, healthful foods and beverages, obesity, and breastfeeding;
? Improve effective delivery and use of quality clinical and other preventive services aimed at preventing and managing diabetes and hypertension; and
? Increase community-clinical linkages to support prevention, self-management, and control of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity.

Long Term Goals:
? Improved prevention and control of hypertension
? Improved prevention and control of diabetes
? Improved prevention and control of overweight and obesity

The FOA has two components: 1) A basic non-competitive component to support health promotion, epidemiology, and surveillance activities and targeted strategies that will result in measurable impacts to address school health, nutrition and physical activity risk factors, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease and stroke prevention in all 50 states and the District of Columbia These efforts will be supported by core public health activities such as partnership engagement, workforce development, guidance and support for programmatic efforts, strategic communication, surveillance and epidemiology, and evaluation; and 2) A competitive enhanced component to build on and extend the activities supported with basic funding to achieve even greater reach and impact.

Thirty-two states were funded under the enhanced Component to implement evidence and practice-based interventions to improve physical activity and nutrition, reduce obesity, and prevent and control diabetes, heart disease, and stroke with a focus on high blood pressure.

The enhanced component includes implementation of evidence-based strategies that are more extensive and wider-reaching than those implemented in the basic component.

States funded for this enhanced component must implement interventions at scale in order to reach large segments of the population in the state (e.g., through school districts, early care and education (ECEs), worksites, and state and local governmental agencies) and in partnership with organizations that may or may not have worked with state departments of health in the past (e.g., large employers, public housing, the education sector, health insurers, and large health systems).
