The Partner Actions to Improve Oral Health Outcomes program is a five-year cooperative agreement to continue CDC investment in and support of oral health promotion and disease prevention programs.
The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to build the strength and effectiveness
of state and territorial oral health programs to prevent and control oral diseases and related conditions.
Partner Actions to Improve Oral Health Outcomes will have two components.
Applicants may choose to apply for component 1 only, component 2 only, or both.
Under component 1, the recipient will implement priority strategies such as providing technical assistance and capacity building resources for states, conducting state oral health program assessments, and conducting assessments and providing technical assistance to territorial oral health programs.
Funds for the assessment and technical assistance strategy for territorial oral health programs are available ONLY for year 1 of the period of performance.
Funds for State oral health infrastructure and capacity building are available for each year of the period of performance.
Under component 2, the recipient will work with five programs selected under NOFO DP18-1810 to implement medical-dental integration activities that integrate oral health with other chronic disease programs.
The recipient will provide technical assistance for medical-dental integration programs, and collect and information supporting the effectiveness of medical-dental integration programs and strategies.
The proposed program will replace and build upon NOFO DP13-1313 [FY2013-FY2018].
Successful implementation and execution of the NOFO strategies will result in decreases in dental caries, oral health disparities, and co-morbid chronic diseases.
