Award recipients are encouraged to collaborate with organizations that may not be funded by CDC, including but not limited to: National disability organizations (e.g., Association of University Centers on Disabilities, American Association on Health and Disability, TASH, United Cerebral Palsy, Disabled American Veterans, National Centre for Independent Living etc.), Statewide or jurisdictional disability organizations (e.g., the Arc, Easter Seals, Centers for Independent Living, etc.), Community-based organizations (e.g., universities, hospitals, health departments, clinics (e.g., medical, dental, vision, hearing, veterinarian, etc.), tribes), and Others (e.g., chronic disease programs, consortium, businesses, churches, parks and recreation, etc.).
This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) supports a new five-year, non-research cooperative agreement to address statewide or jurisdictional needs related to reducing health disparities among adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), and adults with mobility limitations (ML) in the United States. In support of the overarching goal of reducing health disparities among adults with IDD and adults with ML, this NOFO will provide funding to agencies, organizations, and institutions within states and jurisdictions to: 1) establish, expand, and enhance partnerships with organizations that serve adults with IDD and adults with ML; 2) conduct a needs assessment of communities within states and jurisdictions to identify gaps in resources and tools to reduce health disparities among adults with IDD and adults with ML, and identify action steps to fill those gaps; 3) provide training on accessible preventive health care for adults with IDD and adults with ML to healthcare providers within states and jurisdictions; 4) implement and evaluate a demonstration project to link adults with IDD to preventive health care and health promotion programs in their community; 5) implement evidence-based health promotion interventions, as well as policy, system and environmental (PSE) changes, and develop resources and tools to address health disparities among adults with IDD and adults with ML; and 6) disseminate key findings and lessons learned.
The projected long-term outcomes of this NOFO among adults with IDD and adults with ML include:1) improved access to recommended preventive health care and other health services; 2) reduced unmet healthcare needs for mental health conditions, (e.g., depression and anxiety) and their risk factors; 3) increased healthy lifestyle behaviors and physical, mental, and emotional wellness; and 4) reduced prevalence of chronic conditions, (e.g., diabetes) and their risk factors.
