Overview of Program:
There is a need for communities across the United States to develop health promotion opportunities that are equitable for and inclusive of people with disabilities. Inclusive communities provide people with disabilities equal access to and opportunities for healthy living. An Innovative Approach to Inclusive Health is a competitive funding opportunity to assist communities in advancing community health inclusion efforts. The National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD) seeks applications for a planning and implementation project developed to facilitate inclusion of people with mobility, intellectual and/or sensory disability and to increase access to physical activity, healthful food, and/or healthy weight management initiatives. The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to (1) train program stakeholders on an inclusive implementation process, (2) build capacity for effective partner collaboration, and (3) select sustainable, inclusive programmatic, policy, systems and environmental (PPSE) strategies that support inclusion of people with disabilities in a health promotion program.
