Chronic Disease

Priority 2: Chronic Disease

In recognition that the funded approaches described in Access to Care can help improve early detection and management of chronic disease, EPHT will consider requests that seek to reduce health disparities through screening, follow-up care, and/or treatment or management for the following conditions: asthma, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, sexually transmitted diseases, and sickle cell disease.

Strong proposals will demonstrate strategies to address barriers to care for underserved communities in EPHT priority zip codes. Awards may include limited funding for healthy food programming that is part of an integrated approach with other health services.

LOIs for Chronic Disease will be accepted in Cycle 1 and Cycle 2. Please review application instructions and relevant deadlines here.
