Cooperative agreements to USA and Territories agencies, IHEs, school districts, Tribes, and nonprofit organizations to improve the health outcomes of BIPOC populations. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. The program is intended to identify effective approaches for improving health outcomes with the ultimate goal of promoting the dissemination and sustainability of these approaches.
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 grants, OMH supports the identification of effective approaches for improving health outcomes with the ultimate goal of promoting dissemination and sustainability of these approaches. These particular cooperative agreements align with the OASH priority on the elimination of health disparities and the following HHS Strategic Plan goals: (1) Strategic Goal 1: Reform, Strengthen, and Modernize the Nation's Healthcare System; (2) Strategic Goal 2: Protect the Health of Americans Where They Live, Learn, Work, and Play; and (3) Strategic Goal 3: Strengthen the Economic and Social Well-Being of Americans.
The demonstration projects, combined with the Coordinating Center (MP-CPI-21-003), 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. The initiative also focuses on the modification, development, and implementation of policies to improve health outcomes.
