CDC Funding Announcement: Tribal Public Health Capacity Building and Quality Improvement

CDC’s Tribal Support Unit, housed in the Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, is pleased to announce the availability of funds to strengthen and improve the infrastructure and performance of tribal public health agencies and tribal health systems through the provision of capacity building and quality improvement. Applications are due by 11:59 pm (EDT) on July 15, 2013.

Initiating tribal-specific programs will allow awardees to accelerate and expand the reach and health impact of tribal public health infrastructure. Tribal Support will fund federally recognized tribes in Priority Area 1 to develop disease interventions, build public health infrastructure, and cultivate community partnerships, and will fund a project evaluator in Priority Area 2 to conduct a program evaluation project.

To reduce health concerns within American Indian/Alaska Native populations in federally recognized tribes, the program strategies for Priority Area 1 are to 1) develop disease interventions, 2) strengthen and build organizational infrastructure, and 3) cultivate community partnerships. Under Priority Area 2, the program strategy is to conduct monitoring and evaluation for all Priority Area 1 awardees for quality improvement and to disseminate lessons learned.

To be eligible to apply for this FOA, applicants must demonstrate significant experience and expertise in effectively and efficiently working in tribal communities to build tribal public health capacity (Priority Area 1) or evaluate program effectiveness (Priority Area 2).

For more information, see the full announcement for this FOA—Tribal Public Health Capacity Building and Quality Improvement (CDC-RFA-OT13-1303).
