CDC- State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes and Heart Disease
State and Local Public Health Actions a new 4-year, $70 million/year program that builds on efforts initiated in 2013, intensifies work in 18 to 22 state and large city health departments to prevent obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke and reduce health disparities among adults through a combination of community and health system interventions. States will sub-award half of their funds to support implementation activities in 4-8 communities in their states. Community strategies will build support for lifestyle change, particularly for those at high risk, to support diabetes and heart disease and stroke prevention efforts. Health system interventions and community-clinical linkage strategies will aim to improve the quality of health care delivery and preventive services to populations with the highest hypertension and prediabetes disparities. These efforts will be supported by state/jurisdiction-level leadership and coordination and technical assistance to selected communities. Activities will complement but not duplicate those funded under the State Public Health Actions (DP13-1305) initiative.
