The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) is a partnership of public and private organizations working collectively to establish, spread, and sustain an evidence-based lifestyle change program for adults with prediabetes to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes.
Recipients will plan and carry out activities that support the following strategies: 

  • Increase clinician screening, detection, and referral of adults with prediabetes or at high risk for type 2 diabetes to CDC-recognized organizations. Recipients will pay particular attention to implementing novel approaches that support the successful enrollment of eligible referred individuals in the National DPP lifestyle change program. 
  • Increase awareness of prediabetes and enrollment in the lifestyle change program, with a particular focus on enrollment of the priority populations described above. 
  • Increase retention rates for participants in the National DPP lifestyle change program. 
  • Increase programmatic sustainability through achieving third party reimbursement. Recipients will develop strategies that support affiliate organizations’ successful application to become Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program MDPP suppliers.
  • In addition, recipients will support the development of umbrella arrangements to address administrative burdens that often impede community-based organizations from pursuing MDPP supplier status.
