Rural Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes Self-Management Support Grants

This program aims to reduce diabetes-related health inequities in South Carolina. To address these inequities this program will support rural healthcare providers and organizations in expanding their offerings of diabetes self-management support and programs. This support will support existing programs in expanding their geographic reach or populations served. It can also be used for rural healthcare providers to develop and implement new programs/support related to diabetes or pre-diabetes self-management or lifestyle/behavior changes. For existing and new programs, the expectation is that they are working towards accreditation or recognition of their program to assist in program sustainability and to align with the evidence and proven best practices.

Deadline: June 9, 2023
