CDC has announced a funding opportunity for local, state, tribal and territorial jurisdictions to develop an implementation-ready social determinants of health (SDOH) accelerator plan. Recipients will convene and coordinate a Leadership Team consisting of multisectoral partners to plan and develop an SDOH accelerator plan to fast-track improvements in health and social outcomes related to chronic health conditions among population groups experiencing health disparities and inequity.
At least one territory and one tribe will be funded. To ensure geographic diversity, no more than three state and local applicants per HHS region will receive awards. The approximate average award amount is $125,000 with a budget period of 12 months. Applications must be submitted by July 6, 2021, at 11:59 pm ET.
