South Dakota Department of Health (SD DOH) - Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP)
04/26/19 5:00 PM CST
Grants of up to $15,000 and in-kind assistance for South Dakota community based and wellness organizations, health insurance providers, and primary care providers for programs related to the prevention and control of diabetes. The funding source will also provide technical assistance and resources to organizations to establish and implement a National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP).
The South Dakota Department of Health (SD DOH) Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) is providing funding for organizations interested in establishing a new National Diabetes Prevention Programs (National DPP) in South Dakota.
Grant funds will be used to help organizations establish a National DPP and apply for Centers for Disease Control recognition of their program.
In addition to the funding, the SD DOH will provide resources and technical assistance to awardees to implement the National DPP. This may include assistance in identification and recruitment strategies of participants as well as referring partner organizations, assistance with understanding and upholding the National DPP standards, observing occasional DPP sessions to monitor progress, and assistance with components of the evaluation process during and at the completion of the project period.
Applications must demonstrate the potential for successful National DPP, including trained lifestyle coach(es) who deliver the program; access to potential program participants who have a high risk of developing diabetes; patient referrals from health care providers; and reimbursement mechanisms that will sustain the program over time.
Priority will be given to applications that have at least one or more of these elements in place and that will be able to reach a larger population as a result of the grant:
- Organizations located in areas where a willing payer, such as an insurance carrier that already reimburses for the NDPP and has a high market penetration, can serve as a collaborative partner and ensure that a critical number of people would be eligible for reimbursement;
- Organizations with direct access to patient referrals from health care providers for the NDPP such as a community health center that offers the NDPP or a community-based organization with an established relationship with a clinic or primary care providers;
- Organizations located in areas with a large employer willing to offer the NDPP as part of an employee’s wellness program or benefits package;
- Organizations that have established reimbursable programs led by trained lifestyle coaches, and that seek to expand their capacity and outreach to engage more participants in their programs; and
- Organizations that have demonstrated success engaging and working with high-need, vulnerable populations, and that seek to develop their capacity to offer the NDPP.
