Grants to USA and territories agencies, IHEs, and tribal and nonprofit organizations for projects to treat and prevent specific illnesses in minority populations. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to improve outcomes for people aged 12 and up diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

This notice solicits applications to fund projects that test interventions to identify family-centered factors that promote self-management and prevention of Type 2 diabetes among racial and ethnic minority and disadvantaged families who have a member(s) aged 12 and older with Type 2 diabetes. Through the testing of family-centered interventions, OMH expects the FamilyCentered Approaches to Improving Type 2 Diabetes Control and Prevention initiative to identify specific family-centered factors (e.g., structural, instrumental, functional, cultural and social needs) that affect patient self-management of diabetes (e.g., physical activity, healthy nutrition) and family members'  health outcomes. The target population for the intervention is racial/ethnic minority and disadvantaged families with a family member(s) aged 12 and older with Type 2 diabetes. For the purposes of this notice, “family” also includes persons who may live in the same household as the individual with Type 2 diabetes.


  1. Develop and implement a disparity impact statement.
  2. Implement a family-centered intervention for individuals with Type 2 diabetes.
  3. Identify family-centered factors that contribute to the intervention achieving improved diabetes self-management and outcomes.
  4. Implement a process and outcomes evaluation.
  5. Disseminate project findings.
  6. Plan for sustainability of successful interventions.
