Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health for Communities: The purpose of the program is to support local communities to strategically organize to implement and evaluate evidence-based policy, system, and environmental change interventions that eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities in chronic diseases. This program will support the transition of communities from the analysis of intervention results to the use of these results in facilitating health equity and policy change. This funding opportunity is unique in that it (1) allows a phased project period with key outcomes for each phase, (2) engages populations typically left out of the policy, systems, and environmental processes, thereby not realizing the full benefit of such public health actions, and (3) will close the gap in the impact of policy, systems, and environmental change interventions in communities of color. The REACH CORE program will run concurrently with the continuation of the REACH U.S. program in 2012 - 2017. The evidence-based policy, systems, and environmental change strategies that emerge from the REACH CORE program provide the needed complement to the evidence-based behavioral change and community interventions from REACH U.S. to most effectively eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities at the population level.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Current REACH U.S. grantees are not eligible to apply for this funding opportunity. REACH CORE justifies limited competition to eligible applicants who are not current REACH US award recipients for the following reasons. The FY2007 REACH recompetition rendered 140 approved but unfunded applications indicating the level of interest and readiness of racial and ethnic minority communities across the country to launch and sustain programs that address racial and ethnic health disparities. The REACH CORE program provides much needed resources for those communities strategically poised to achieve larger scale community health impacts through an aggressive and targeted policy, system, and environmental change community action plan. At the time of award for REACH CORE, REACH US grantees will begin project period year 04 of implementation and evaluation. Maintaining focus and course of action on achieving established goals and objectives through the end of the project period supports the importance of improving health outcomes and the elimination of identified health disparities in these REACH US communities. Eligible applicants that can apply for this funding opportunity are listed below: Nonprofit organizations For-profit organizations (other than small business) Small, minority, and women-owned businesses Universities Colleges Research institutions Hospitals Community-based organizations Faith-based organizations Federally recognized or state-recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribal governments American Indian/Alaska native tribally designated organizations Alaska Native health corporations Urban Indian health organizations Tribal epidemiology centers State and local governments or their Bona Fide Agents (this includes the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianna Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau) Political subdivisions of States (in consultation with States) A Bona Fide Agent is an agency/organization identified by the state as eligible to submit an application under the state eligibility in lieu of a state application.
