Eastern Standard Time
The purpose of this webinar is to provide an overview of the request for proposal for year 3 of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Improving Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) – Getting Further Faster (GFF) initiative and help answer any questions that applicants may have related to the funding opportunity. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to build evidence for how public health, healthcare and human services systems can implement, evaluate, and sustain programs to promote cross-sector linkages that address the social determinants of health (SDOH).
Co-led by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the Year 1 and 2 retrospective evaluations provided a better understanding of how multi-sector community partnerships/coalitions are advancing health equity and improving chronic disease conditions by addressing SDOH in the following domains: the built environment, clinical-community linkages, food and nutrition security, social connectedness, and tobacco-free policies.
Year 3 of the project will focus on partnerships that include State and/or Local Health Departments (S/LHDs), Non-Profit Health Systems, and/or Human Services Organizations, with the overall goal of identifying best practices and sustainable models for use of community philanthropic and community benefit resources towards prevention and SDOH. Awards will be made to up to twenty (20) partnerships with a successful history of addressing one or more of the above listed SDOH domains to improve health outcomes and advance health equity. Selected grant recipients will engage in a retrospective evaluation focusing on the identifying the infrastructure needed to support collaboration between local/state health departments, and health care systems and/or human service agencies engaged in SDOH work. Included in this analysis will be conducting a cost-analysis, identifying the role and opportunities of S/LHDs to support SDOH efforts, and identifying outcomes and longer-term impacts associated with SDOH initiatives led by public health, healthcare/human services partnerships.
