Planned activities include creating informational resources and materials for the public, engaging state and local partners to adopt Road Map action items, developing training materials for current and future professionals about Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD), and disseminating effective messages related to brain health. Furthermore, it is expected that the Part A organization will develop the 4th State and Local Public Health Road Map plus several focused road maps in areas such as Indian Country, language-specific, etc., to be determined with input from CDC. In addition, CDC will fund (Part B) one or more organizations that support populations with a high burden of ADRD to develop products to communicate relevant messages to these populations and assist in the implementation of the Part A activities. NOFO activities are expected to promote brain health, address cognitive impairment including ADRD, and support the needs of caregivers (unpaid persons providing care or assistance to someone with ADRD). NOFO applicants may apply for Part A and/or Part B. If applying for both, separate applications are required.
