The program makes funds available for a cooperative agreement with organizations with demonstrated experience and capacity to implement community engagement methods and multi-sector partnerships to promote personal health, advance community wellness, influence health behavior and practices, and reduce STI disparities. The new FOA provides support in five focus areas: (1) implementation of community engagement methods (e.g. community-based participatory research) to achieve health equity; (2) identification and implementation of systems and environmental change strategies that promote personal health and support healthy behaviors and that facilitate community-clinical linkages to build support for interventions to prevent and reduce STI disparities; (3) enhancement and sustainability of partnerships; (4) support for communication strategies to promote STD program successes and leverage additional resources for STI control and prevention; and (5) evaluation of the efficacy of this approach and intervention implementation.
Grants range from $250,000 to $312,500.
Please Note: The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) does not administer this funding opportunity.
