Improving Epilepsy Education, Systems of Care, and Health Outcomes through National and Community Partnerships

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

This NOFO aims to address four key areas:

1. Improve the social environment for people with epilepsy;

2. Strengthen the health system to improve epilepsy care;

3. Foster connections between clinical services and community programs; and

4. Address social determinants of health (e.g. social isolation, food insecurity, communityclinical linkages) to improve quality of life for people with epilepsy.

The NOFO will fund two components:

Component A: an organization that will provide services in at least 25 states. The organization funded to complete Component A strategies will address all of the NOFO content areas.

Component B: 1-3 organizations to work in specific geographic areas (e.g. community, state, region). The organization(s) funded to complete Component B strategies will address one to two content areas through activities.

Eligible applicants may only apply for either Component A or Component B. Multiple applications from the same entity will not be accepted. Any organization that submits multiple applications will be deemed non-responsive and those applications will not receive further review
