Cooperative agreement to a USA or Territory agency, IHE, school district, Tribe, or nonprofit organization to address health disparities impacting BIPOC populations. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. The program is intended to establish and operate a Coordinating Center that will be responsible for research, technical assistance, and evaluation.

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) and the Office of Minority Health (OMH) announce the availability of funds for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 under the authority of 42 U.S.C. § 300u-6 (Section 1707 of the Public Health Service Act). OMH is dedicated to improving the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of health policies and programs that will help eliminate health disparities. Through its demonstration projects, OMH supports the identification of effective approaches for improving health outcomes with the ultimate goal of promoting dissemination and sustainability of these approaches. This particular cooperative agreement aligns with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health priority on the elimination of health disparities and HHS Strategic Goal 2, Objective 2: Prevent, treat and control communicable diseases and chronic conditions.

The Coordinating Center (MP-CPI-21-003), combined with the Office of Minority Health demonstration projects (MP-CPI-21-004), constitute the “Framework to Address Health Disparities through Collaborative Policy Efforts” initiative. The goal of the initiative is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a methodological framework, structured process, and tool in supporting the assessment and identification of policies that may create or perpetuate health disparities by contributing to structural racism, as well as the modification, development, and implementation of policies to improve health outcomes.

The Coordinating Center will oversee and coordinate complementary and collaborative efforts among the participating sites (OMH-funded and self-funded) through leadership and management toward the goals and objectives of the initiative.

This notice solicits applications to establish and operate a Coordinating Center that will:

  1. Lead the development of a methodological framework, process, and tool for the assessment of policies that may create or perpetuate health disparities by contributing to structural racism, in collaboration with MP-CPI-21-004 “Framework to Address Health Disparities through Collaborative Policy Efforts: Demonstration Projects” recipients;
  2. Provide technical assistance to MP-CPI-21-004 recipients and self-funded participant organizations on utilizing the framework, process, and tool; and
  3. Lead the evaluation of the implementation of the methodological framework, process, and tool.
