This NOFO is non-competitive, and will support state investments in implementing and evaluating evidence-based strategies to prevent and manage cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes in high-burden populations/communities within each state and the District of Columbia, contributing to improved health
High burden populations are those affected disproportionately by high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, or prediabetes due to socioeconomic or other characteristics, including inadequate access to care, poor quality of care, or low income.
Category A strategies focus on diabetes management and type 2 diabetes prevention.
Category B strategies focus on CVD prevention and management.
In both categories, applicants will select from a menu of strategies, and should focus in areas where they have capacity, subject matter expertise, and potential to achieve greatest reach and impact.
Where appropriate, applicants will apply their selected Category A and B strategies in the same targeted communities/settings, so that work on these strategies may be mutually reinforcing.
Complementary strategies should be addressed in a way that benefits both people with prediabetes or diabetes and people with high blood pressure and with or at risk for high blood cholesterol.
Funding, resources, and level of effort should be divided equally between Category A and B strategies.
