State Partnership Grants

State Partnership Initiative to Address Health Disparities (SPI)

Grant Period: 2015-2020

The State Partnership Initiative to Address Health Disparities (SPI) is intended to demonstrate that partnerships in which (a) state offices of minority health/health equity (or other similar state entity) and state health agencies, or (b) tribes and tribal health agencies/organizations play a significant role, can efficiently and effectively improve health outcomes in selected geographical hotspots and address health disparities that affect minorities and disadvantaged populations.  This program supports state partnership initiatives to:  (1) produce a Health Disparities Profile on one to three Healthy People 2020 leading health indicator (LHI) topics chosen by the grantee for geographical hotspots (in the grantee’s state or tribal community) selected by the grantee, using existing baseline measures; (2) implement community intervention activities in the geographical hotspots selected by the grantee, using strategies to improve health outcomes and address health disparities for the grantee’s chosen one to three LHI topics (using baseline data from the Health Disparities Profile); and (3) publish the results of the implementation project and/or produce scholarly articles or brief reports which (a) compare the results of the baseline data/measures to the outcomes/impact measures, and (b) address improvements in health outcomes and health disparities for the selected one to three LHI topics. SPI projects began August 1, 2015 through September 1, 2015 and will end July 31, 2020.
