A brief description of what we know about the DIS Supplement based on the recently released NOFO, as well as key elements needed to develop a strong application. This is not an exhaustive list, but it is meant to be a resource to help guide your application writing.
This checklist is a tool to help project area staff ensure that deliverables and key elements in the NOFO are met and contained in the proposal submitted to CDC.
This document is an initial completion of ideas by the NCSD membership on how they could use expanded DIS funding. It was compiled ahead of the release of updated funding guidance and does not imply CDC approval of ideas listed below. It is incumbent on project areas to make the case on why the activities they propose fit within the guidance and all activities are subject to a technical review by CDC.
This is a tool to help find solutions to potential implementation barriers.
To assist NCSD members in incorporating Health Equity into their PCHD Supplemental DIS Funding, NCSD has created a toolkit with key terms and online resources.
