  • National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention: “Supports national organizations and their chapters/affiliates in building and strengthening communities’ abilities to implement community health improvement strategies.”
  • Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH): “Seeks to strengthen existing capacity to implement locally tailored evidence and practice-based population-wide improvements in priority populations experiencing chronic disease disparities and associated risk factors and support implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of strategies.”
  • PPHF 2014: State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease and Stroke: “Supports implementation of population-wide and priority population approaches to prevent obesity, diabetes, and heart disease and stroke and reduce health disparities in these areas among adults.”

  • Programs to Reduce Obesity in High Obesity Areas: “Funds up to 6 Land Grant Colleges and Universities located in states with counties with an adult obesity prevalence of over 40%.”

During the Web Forum, attendees will be provided with an overview of the new funding opportunities, discussion of strategies and efforts to build a system of prevention and clinical integration, and ways to advance equity through community engagement. Participants will also learn strategies to ensure robust communications are provided to key audiences including policymakers.
