Chronic Disease Risk Reduction
The purpose of this community grant program is to provide funding and technical assistance to communities to address chronic disease risk reduction through evidence-based strategies that impact tobacco use, physical activity and nutrition.
Eligible applicants are local health departments that are expected to serve as the project lead on behalf of the community. However, a local health department may designate a partner organization to serve as the lead agency in one of two ways: 1) a local health department applies for CDRR funding serving as the fiscal agent and subcontracts with a partner organization to implement grant activities, or 2) a local health department designates a partner organization to apply directly for CDRR funding, serve as the fiscal agent and implement grant activities. If a local health department designates a partner organization to serve as the fiscal agent (scenario 2), the application must include a letter from the local health department stating that it has designated the agency to be the applicant Single or multi county applications will be accepted.
Tobacco prevention funding is contingent upon appropriations by the Kansas State legislature. Physical activity and nutrition activity funding is contingent upon availability of federal funds.
