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 provide funding to support implementation and optimization of diabetic retinopathy screening programs using telehealth.

 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 and nearly two dozen community partners to reduce racial and socioeconomic disparities around diabetes outcomes. The Chicago CARES program seeks to provide financial support to provide seed funding to three organizations who are well positioned to implement or optimize their internal diabetic retinopathy screening program using telehealth.
