Current funding opportunities:

Chicago CARES Diabetes Prevention Program funding opportunity: The Chicago Collaboration to Advance Reach Equity and Systems (CARES) to prevent diabetes announces a request for proposals (RFP) to expand access to evidence based diabetes prevention programs in Chicago. Chicago CARES is funded by a $6 million, five year grant from the CDC and is a partnership between the Chicago Department of Public Health and the Illinois Public Health Institute. Chicago CARES aims to reduce racial, ethnic and socio-economic disparities in diabetes outcomes by expanding access to high-quality CDC recognized lifestyle change programs (commonly known as the Diabetes Prevention Program, or DPP) for low-income, African American, and Latinx adults in Chicago. In addition, Chicago CARES is working to advance systems and policies to support access and expansion of the DPP.
