Grants for U.S. and territories non-profits, for profits, hospitals, and other entities to develop strategies to improve the health of the nation by reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Grantee(s) will work with the grantor to collaborate and partner with national, state, and local entities in order to address contributing factors such as smoking and high blood pressure, cholesterol, and sodium intake.

Applicants must have national reach (the capacity to guide the Nation in taking action) to support implementation of national, state, and local level strategies that align with select recommendations from the Grants for Update to A Public Health Action Plan to Prevent Heart Disease and Stroke and Million Hearts™ initiative. Million Hearts™ aims to improve heart disease and stroke prevention by:
• Improving access to effective care.
• Improving quality of care.
• Focusing more clinical attention on heart attack and stroke prevention.
• Increasing public awareness of how to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle.
• Increasing the consistent use of high blood pressure and cholesterol medications.
In addition, outcomes will be aligned with the following goals:
• Increase the capacity of state cardiovascular disease programs to address prevention of cardiovascular disease at the community level.
• Increase the capacity of states and communities to effectively address chronic disease prevention and health promotion among racial, ethnic, and other populations with higher rates of disease and lower access to health sustaining policies and environments in order to reduce and eliminate health disparities.

Recipient activities include:
• Convene, coordinate, and mobilize public health partnerships to address national, state, and local level strategies impacting heart disease, stroke, and their risk factors such as high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and high sodium intake. Partners can include a broad array of groups/organizations that influence health.
• Promote effective best practices and national, state, and local level strategies that address heart disease, stroke, and their risk factors.
• Communicate consistent cardiovascular health information and messages to the public, health professionals, decision makers, stakeholders at all levels, and populations at most risk.
• Support public and private partners in their work by developing and administering ongoing technical assistance and consultation to implement evidence-based strategies and best practices that address heart disease, stroke, and their risk factors.
• Identify or create opportunities to promote the Million Hearts™ initiative; encourage public and private sector partners to make commitments that support the Million Hearts™ goal.
• Develop and maintain performance and outcome measurement and accountability systems that document the impact and reach of activities. Communicate impact and reach through the identification and development of success stories that can be posted on Million Hearts™ and other websites.
• Serve as a role model in adopting and implementing evidence-based organizational programs and policies that address heart disease, stroke and their risk factors as appropriate.
