Purpose

The Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) program will award grants for projects designed to improve health, prevent chronic diseases, and reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic populations with the highest risk, or burden, of chronic disease, specifically for African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and Alaska Natives.

Proposed projects should:

  • Support culturally tailored interventions to address the preventable health behaviors of tobacco use, poor nutrition, and physical inactivity
  • Link community and clinical efforts to increase access to healthcare and preventive care programs at the community level
  • Support implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of practice- and evidence-based strategies related to tobacco, nutrition, physical activity, and community-clinical linkages that ultimately lead to reduced health disparities in chronic conditions of hypertension, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity

In addition to minority populations, health disparity priority populations also include:

  • People with disabilities
  • Rural populations
  • Non-English speaking populations
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) populations
  • People with limited health literacy
