The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 93.945. BILLING CODE 4163–18–P B. Eligible Applicant Assistance will only be provided to the Directors of Health Promotion and Education (DHPE). No other applications are solicited. DHPE is the only organization that can provide the services specified under this announcement. Eligibility is limited to DPHE because of its unique relationship with the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and other ASTHO affiliates. DHPE is the only national nonprofit health education organization of which program directors and staff representing all states and territories are members. As such, it is uniquely capable, and organized specifically to serve as a leader and a confer of activities relative to State health education programs. DHPE has developed unique knowledge and understanding of the needs and operations of State health agencies. This affiliation with ASTHO is extremely important for the purposes of this cooperative agreement. It enables close coordination of national initiatives, identification of state trends that may impact national programs, and enables partnering with other state health agency departments on cross cutting issues. DHPE is the only affiliate whose primary mission is to promote education and health promotion as core disciplines of public health practice and to advocate for quality health education and health promotion programs and strategies to address the nation’s leading health problems. The organization represents both fields of health promotion and health education, as opposed to other public health organizations which have a primary focus on the profession of health education. Health promotion looks more broadly at public health systems, health policy, environmental change, and DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [Program Announcement 05077] Directors of Health Promotion and Education; Notice of Intent to Fund Single Eligibility Award A.
