DSME Mini-Grant Funding Opportunity

WellFlorida Council is pleased to announce the availability of mini-grant funding from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to expand access to Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) programs in North Central Florida. People with diabetes who complete a DSME program are better able to manage their disease and prevent or delay complications. DSME is s a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to disease management that meets national standards.

To extend the reach of the DSME mini-grant funding opportunity, WellFlorida was selected as one of three health planning councils to act as a “hub” for distribution of funds and coordination of services.

The purpose of this funding is to reduce health inequity in areas with limited or no access to quality DSME services. These areas include rural communities without a recognized or accredited DSME program and populations which experience high rates of type 2 diabetes, its complications and diabetes-related death.

Please see the announcement and application for additional details.
