Department of Health and Human Services: Special Diabetes Program for Indians Community-Directed ProgramDeadline: October 7, 2015
The Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) is accepting new and competing continuation cooperative agreement applications for the Community-Directed Grant Program. Cooperative agreements are expected to provide diabetes treatment and/or prevention activities and/or services for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. Grantees will implement one SDPI Diabetes Best Practice and report data. Grantees may also implement other activities/services based on diabetes-related community needs and develop an evaluation plan. Activities/services will be aimed at reducing the risk of diabetes in at-risk individuals, providing high quality care to those with diagnosed diabetes, and/or reducing the complications of diabetes.
Amount: A total of approximately $130,200,000 will be awarded to 325 to 450 organizations. Individual awards are expected to be between $12,500 to $6,500,000 with an average award amount of approximately $300,000. New SDPI Community-Directed grant applicants should apply for a $12,500 base amount. The project period is from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2020.
Eligibility: Federally-recognized Indian tribes; tribal organizations; nonprofit urban Indian organizations; and Indian Health Service facilities. Only only one SDPI Community-Directed Diabetes grant will be awarded per entity. If a Tribe submits an application, their local IHS facility cannot apply; if the Tribe does not submit an application, the IHS facility can apply. Tribes that are awarded grant funds may sub-contract with local IHS facilities to provide specific clinical services. In this case, the Tribe would be the primary SDPI grantee and the Federal entity would have a sub-contract within the Tribe’s SDPI grant.
