Funder: Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

Deadline: 04/26/2021

Award Details: CDC announces the availability of fiscal year (FY) 2021 funds to implement CDC-RFA-DP21-2105, Promoting Population Health through Increased Capacity in Alcohol Epidemiology and the Prevention of Excessive Alcohol Use. The purpose of this NOFO is to build state capacity in alcohol epidemiology and provide the tools and information needed to perform core public health functions related to excessive alcohol use prevention in states. This increased epidemiologic capacity will help build the public health infrastructure that is needed to reduce excessive alcohol use – a leading preventable cause of death in the U.S. The NOFO includes an additional component for the delivery of expert technical assistance and training on population-level evidence-based strategies for preventing excessive alcohol use and related harms in states and communities, such as those recommended by the Community Preventive Services Task Force. The period of performance is 5 years with a 12-month budget period and an anticipated award date of 9/30/2021.

Number of Awards: 9 Awards, 8 with Component 1, 1 with Component 2. No match. Total funding: $9,250,000. Ceiling $600,000 and Floor $200,000. Approximately $1,850,000 is available in year 1 to support approximately eight Component 1 recipients at approximately $187,500 each and approximately one Component 2 recipient at approximately $350,000.The period of performance is 5 years with a 12-month budget period and an anticipated award date of 9/30/2021.

Target Population: The work completed under this NOFO is intended to target populations who drink excessively in states. Component 1 applicants may choose to identify specific populations to work with or to study to reduce alcohol-related disparities and improve health equity in the state.

However, due to the nature of excessive drinking and its potential to be associated with harms to drinkers and to others, this NOFO is intended to create safer and healthier states for everyone by addressing excessive drinking at a population level.

Nevertheless, strategies and activities that directly involve populations that are disproportionately impacted by excessive alcohol use are critical for accelerating a reduction in the alcohol-related health, social, and economic burden experienced by some populations; therefore, surveillance of excessive drinking and related harms among these populations is encouraged.

Component 1 recipients will be expected to engage with disproportionately affected populations in their jurisdiction in a culturally competent manner. Alcohol-related disparities vary across jurisdictions and they are affected by characteristics of populations, social determinants of health, and the implementation of alcohol control policies.
