2016-12-8 Latest highlights and funding opportunities from RWJF News. The 500 Cities Project—Local Data for Better Health—is a collaboration among the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the CDC Foundation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), whose purpose is to provide high quality small area estimates for behavioral risk factors that influence health status, for health outcomes, and the use of clinical preventive services. These estimates can be used to identify emerging health problems and to develop and implement effective, targeted public health prevention activities.

Downloadable maps are currently available for measures of chronic health conditions, behaviors and risk factors in the Oklahoma cities of Broken Arrow, Edmond, Lawton, Norman, Oklahoma City and Tulsa. (http://www.cdc.gov/500cities/map-books.htm#ui-id-69)

Additionally, this publication offers lessons learned from the Mandela Marketplace in West Oakland which was originally designed as a project to increase access to nutritious and affordable food but has grown to much more. Key factors that are attributed to the success of this community effort, and that can be applied to other community efforts, include community engagement throughout development, sustainability, the ability to inspire demand, a structure of equal ownership and measures of progress.

  • TSET is devoted to preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease, Oklahoma's leading causes of death. TSET is helping to contribute to heart health through multiple grant programs. Our Healthy Living Program grants are designed to prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease by preventing and reducing tobacco use and obesity on a local level by working with in communities to create opportunities for health. We also address Oklahoma's leading causes of death through Health Systems Initiative grants, research, and health communication interventions, as customized public health education interventions are one of the most effective strategies for promoting health behaviors.

  • October is National Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month, which is dedicated to educating the public about what sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is and how to respond to cardiac arrest. An automatic external defibrillator (AED) can help save lives during a sudden cardiac arrest event.

Through the TSET Healthy Schools Incentive Grant Program, ten school districts have purchased AED machines for their facilities. AED's cost an average of $1,500, and incentive grants help schools purchase this lifesaving equipment.

6/7/2016 Rural Community Development Initiative – deadline July 22.  The USDA’s Rural Community Development Initiative awards grants to develop the capacity and ability of nonprofit organizations, low-income rural communities, or federally recognized tribes to undertake projects related to housing, community facilities, or community and economic development in rural areas.  Areas with fewer than 50,000 residents can receive up to $250,000 to provide technical assistance to sub-grantees serving their communities.

4/5/2016 This is a great opportunity to CHIOs to focus on or double-down on social determinants in promoting health and health equity in your counties, but be careful to note that your city or county size must be at least 65,000 in population to apply.  In Oklahoma, less than 15% of our counties meet that threshold, thus a limited number of CHIOs will qualify.

Announcement from APHA - We know that achieving health equity means addressing the social determinants of health. And in the long term, sustainable success requires reaching outside the traditional public health community to form cross-sector partnerships. That’s why this National Public Health Week, we’re so excited to announce a new opportunity to create healthier communities nationwide.

Announcing the $1.5 million Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge

APHA, the Aetna Foundation and the National Association of Counties, in partnership with CEOs for Cities, announce the start of a multiyear program to encourage small to mid-sized cities, counties and federally recognized tribes to convene multisector partnerships in support of positive health change. More than $1.5 million in prizes will be awarded to participants that demonstrate measurable change in the next few years. Efforts will be judged both on the quality of cross-sector partnerships and progress on metrics such as tobacco use, walkability, housing affordability, living wages and community safety.

Accounting for Social Risk Factors in Medicare Payment: Identifying Social Risk Factors

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, acting through the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, has asked the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to convene an ad hoc committee to identify social risk factors that affect the health outcomes of Medicare beneficiaries and methods to account for these factors in Medicare payment programs. The committee’s work will be conducted in phases and will produce five brief consensus reports. In this first report, the committee presents a conceptual framework and describes the results of a literature search linking social risk factors, including socioeconomic position, to health-related measures of importance to Medicare payment and quality programs.
