CDC announces the availability of fiscal year 2023 funds to implement CDC-RFA-DP23-2314: Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH). This 5-year program is to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, and reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic populations with the highest risk, or burden, of chronic disease, specifically for African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and Alaska Natives by:
Supporting culturally tailored interventions to address to promote activities to decrease tobacco use, poor nutrition practices, and physical inactivity.
Supporting implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of practice- and evidence-based strategies of tobacco, nutrition, and physical activity collaborations that ultimately lead to reduced health disparities in chronic conditions of hypertension, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity.
Supporting activities to enhance capacity to educate and promote the importance of immunization among racial and ethnic minority populations. Linking community and clinical efforts to increase individual's access to health care and preventive care programs within their community.
