How to Apply

The CDC states, “Funded health departments will promote a strong public health approach to Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD). Recipients are focused on changing systems, environments and policies to promote risk reduction, to improve early diagnosis, to prevent and manage comorbidities, and to avoid hospitalizations. To accomplish this public health approach to Alzheimer’s disease, recipients are using data to set priorities, to develop public health actions, to address social determinants of health, and to provide support for caregivers who take care of people with dementias. Funded recipients’ activities will align with the Healthy Brain Initiative State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia: The 2018–2023 Road Map [PDF – 19.3 MB] and the Road Map for Indian Country. These projects fulfill the aim of the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act (Public Law 115-406). Core Capacity recipients will be creating statewide dementia coalitions and developing or updating ADRD strategic plans for their jurisdictions using the Road Maps as a guide. Enhanced recipients already have these things in place and will be implementing ADRD activities in line with their strategic plan and the Road Map actions.”

The basic requirements and the application process can be found on the CDC BOLD Grant website.
