Two New Grant Opportunities Available to Local Diabetes Coalitions in Appalachia

October 2011


The Appalachian Diabetes Control and Translation Project (ADCTP), a partnership between ARC, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Marshall University's Center for Rural Health, is offering grants of $40,000 a year for four years (up to $160,000 total) for diabetes coalitions ready to expand their efforts to help prevent and manage diabetes in Appalachia. Applicants must be located in one of 104 counties in nine Appalachian states. Applications are due November 18, 2011. ADCTP Request for Proposals (PDF: 467 KB)

A separate grant opportunity, for training grants of $5,000–$7,000, is available to local health departments and their community partners through the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Counties that have taken part in the ADCTP program in the past are not eligible for this NACCHO program. Applications are due November 15, 2011. NACCHO Grant Opportunity
