Brief Description of Program:
The purpose of the Office of Minority Health and Health Disparity’s (OMHHD) State Partnership
Grant Program is to engage public health entities, community and faith based organizations, nonprofits and stakeholders to address health disparities in their communities. To equip these
organizations, OMHHD provides a range of consultation and technical assistance. This approach is
to help the organizations implement Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS)
standards and mobilize coalitions to address health disparities.
The overarching goals of the initiative are to: 1) identify and assess gaps in preventive service
delivery; 2) enhance the capability of Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) and Faith-Based
Organizations (FBOs) to focus on prevention issues; and 3) enhance OMHHD’s capability to serve
as a clearinghouse for information about federal resources. Key approaches utilized to accomplish
project goals include: 1) determining the capacity of and usefulness of existing state and county-level
data systems to monitor, track and evaluate the effectiveness of preventive health services to minority
populations; 2) conducting a needs assessment utilizing available data and focus groups; 3)
identifying barriers in obtaining data; 4) conducting an inventory of sources for federal technical
assistance; and 5) developing the leadership capacity of community-based organizations to advocate,
communicate and evaluate the needs of minority communities.
