Description: Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) occurs in epidemic proportions in parts of Arizona tribal lands. Annual incidence of RMSF in certain tribal communities is more the 150 times higher than the national average, and more than 50% of RMSF cases occur in children. Prevention of RMSF require collaboration of human, animal, and environmental health partners. The purpose of this NOFO is to provide resources to American Indian tribal nations impacted by Rocky Mountain spotted fever in Arizona. These resources will support the development and maintenance of RMSF prevention and control programs within their communities by increasing use of evidence-based interventions, developing improved communications products, strengthening RMSF support services like animal control and vector control services within the community, enhancing tracking of key progress indicators, and by providing support to evaluate the use of current RMSF prevention programs. Through this FOA, CDC seeks to fund eligible federally recognized tribes to provide capacity building in strengthening tribal health systems, and evaluate and monitor awarded tribal public health capacity building projects in AI/AN communities. Activities include: Implementation and adaptation of evidence-based interventions to reduce RMSF Development, dissemination, and evaluation of locally-minded communications plan for RMSF Implementation of RMSF program evaluation Development of strengthened RMSF support services (such as animal control, vector control or environmental management) in tribal communities (by training, equipping tribal program or utilizing contracted services)
