Funding and Educational Opportunities

The Idaho Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) Program periodically provides funding opportunities and highlights educational opportunities for providers and partners interested in preventing and managing chronic diseases.

Funding Opportunities

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) Program is currently seeking applications from Idaho organizations that provide evidence-based interventions to prevent and manage diabetes and hypertension in community-based or outpatient primary care clinical settings.

The DHDSP Program is housed within the Bureau of Community and Environmental Health, Division of Public Health. These opportunities are funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “Improving the Health of Americans through Prevention and Management of Diabetes and Heart Disease and Stroke” (CDC-RFA-DP18-1815, CFDA# 93.426). 

Eligible applicants that primarily provide outpatient primary care in a clinical setting will be supported, in part, by the DHDSP Program’s Clinical Quality Improvement Contractor, One Health Insights.

Notification: Unique Entity Identification Number Delays

Subgrant solicitations (or funding opportunity announcements) issued through the Idaho Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) Program require applicants to provide their Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) and prove active registration with the System for Award Management (sam.gov). On April 7, 2022, due to high demand, sam.gov issued an alert “Entity Validation Ticket Processing Delays” given entity legal business name and address validation tickets taking longer than expected to process, resulting in delayed UEI number issuance. Given this notification, the Idaho DHDSP Program will accept applications pending receipt of a UEI number; however, a subaward cannot be issued without the UEI number.

"[The subgrant] has enabled us to create and develop our Chronic Care Management program. It has been so rewarding to see the excitement in my patients when they get a lower A1C result, BP improvement, and weight loss."
