Objectives: This five-year funding opportunity offers support to prevent heart disease, diabetes and associated risk factors in American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities through a holistic approach to population health and wellness. There will be two components to this funding opportunity announcement. Component One will fund 12 AI/AN tribes, one within each of the 12 Indian Health Service (IHS) areas, who will use a combination of community chosen and culturally adapted policies, systems, and environmental changes to increase access to fresh, healthy traditional foods, and offer alternatives to less healthy packaged and processed foods high in sodium and fat. Component One will also strive to promote programs to increase physical activity, health education, and team based strategies to strengthen community-clinical linkages promoting lifelong health and preventing chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Awardees will customize environmental approaches for their communities to foster sustainability, broaden community and cross-sector partnerships, and demonstrate population change to promote health and reduce risk factors that lead to chronic disease. Component Two awardees will be Tribal organizations, as set forth in 25 U.S.C., Section 1603, and other Tribal-Serving Organizations. Twelve Tribal Organizations will receive funding (no more than one in each Area) to provide Technical Assistance, Training, and Resources to AI/AN tribes and villages within their IHS areas to promote community chosen and culturally adapted policies, systems, and environmental changes. These changes will lead to sustainable increased access to fresh, healthy traditional foods, decreased access to less healthy packaged and processed foods, increased physical activity, health education, as well as strengthened community-clinical linkages to promote lifelong health and prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
