Description

CDC intends to award one Cooperative Agreement pursuant to this notice of funding opportunity. Subject to funding availability and at the discretion of the Agency, CDC intends to provide up to $5-10 million in total CDC funding over a five (5) year period. Applicants will be required to have documented affiliations with state-level breastfeeding coalitions in all states (or U.S. territories) to perform the objectives and goals of this Notice. This activity will help to reduce health gaps related to breastfeeding caused by differences such as income, education, race/ethnicity and location. This activity will complement current CDC breastfeeding activities and build on previous experiences and successes, while incorporating new sustainable approaches that promote optimal breastfeeding support. The purposes of this opportunity are to improve breastfeeding initiation, duration and exclusivity and to decrease racial/ethnic disparities in breastfeeding by coordinating a national approach...
