Grants to USA non-profits and government agencies to support evidence-based localized models of how technology and digital health strategies can be used to promote and support chronic disease prevention and management. Letters of inquiry are due February 16. Funding is intended to serve minority and other underserved populations.

Applicants may apply for a maximum grant of $250,000 for the first 12 months. Applicants who are successful in the first year (as determined by the Aetna Foundation) will be eligible for another $500,000 for the next two years (up to $250,000 each year).

Applications will be assessed on the following:

- The applicability of the proposed technology or digital health strategy to address an important barrier to chronic disease prevention and management in minority and other underserved populations.

- Whether the approaches or interventions being used are novel or innovative, could drive systems change improvements and catalyze efforts to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities.

- Whether the aims, methods, strategies, analyses, sample size and contextual environment are realistically appropriate to address chronic disease prevention and management for the targeted population.

- Applicants’ demonstrated credibility and influence in their targeted communities based on the types and quality of partnerships and coalitions being presented. Established local partners must be fully engaged in the proposed work.

- Interdisciplinary approaches and targeted population engagement in the implementation and testing of technology and digital health strategies.

- The use of measurable, health and health care-related objectives.

- The reasonableness of the budget and timeline for the proposed work.

Applications also will be reviewed on completeness of the project plan, organizational capacity, the appropriate representation and participation of community partners and collaborations, as well as a plan for sustainability.
