Improving the Health of People with Mobility Limitations and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities through State-based Public Health Programs

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) supports a new five-year, non-research cooperative agreement to address statewide or jurisdictional needs related to reducing health disparities among adults with intellectual disabilities and other developmental disabilities (IDD), and adults with mobility limitations (ML) in the United States. In support of the overarching goal, this NOFO will provide funding to agencies, organizations, and institutions within states and jurisdictions to: (1) establish, expand, and enhance partnerships with organizations that serve adults with disabilities; (2) conduct community needs assessments within states and jurisdictions to identify gaps in resources and tools, and identify action steps to fill those gaps; (3) administer and evaluate a training for providers on accessible preventive health care; (4) implement and evaluate a demonstration project to link adults with IDD to preventive health care and health promotion programs in their community; (5) implement and evaluate evidence-based health promotion interventions, as well as policy, system and environmental (PSE) changes, and develop resources and tools to address health disparities among adults with IDD and ML; and (6) disseminate key findings and lessons learned. Long-term outcomes among the target populations include improvements in (1) number of providers that can offer accessible preventive health care, (2) fewer unmet preventive health care needs, including mental health; (3) health behaviors and wellness; (4) chronic conditions and risk factors.
