State Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Learning Collaborative: Improving Hypertension Through Equitable Change

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) is issuing a request for proposals (RFP) for the ASTHO/CDC Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Learning Collaborative: Improving Hypertension Through Equitable Change. Up to seven (7) states will be awarded a minimum of $100,000 each. The project will support innovative and sustainable state heart disease and stroke prevention projects that focus on improving hypertension through equitable change.

This RFP is open to all state public health agencies, with priority for applications that prioritize a jurisdiction with a high burden of hypertension and significant social and economic need. Applicants may work with an entity, whether coalitions, universities, or local entities to apply as bona fide agents on their behalf. The bona fide agent will be required to submit a letter from the state public health agency designating the entity of this status and confirming their involvement as a partner in the project.

Applications should be emailed to chronicdisease@astho.org.

Deadline for submission: Feb. 11, 2022, by 11:59 p.m. ET
