The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced funds available for the BOLD Public Health Programs to Address Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (CDC-RFA-DP20-2004) to fulfill the aim of the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act (P.L. 115-406). The estimated total funding is $11,100,000 to be distributed across an expected 15 awards.
The purpose of the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to develop a strong public health approach to Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias, including risk reduction (primary prevention), early diagnosis (secondary prevention), prevention and management of comorbidities and avoidable hospitalizations (tertiary prevention), using data for priority setting and action, and support for caregiving for persons with dementia, including addressing social determinants of health. The activities will align with the Healthy Brain Initiative State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia: The 2018–2023 Road Map and the Road Map for Indian Country.
