Application FAQs

How do I know if I am eligible to apply?

If you answer “No” to any of the following questions, you are not eligible to receive this funding.

     1. Are you providing an in-person, onsite or combination, CDC Recognized Diabetes Prevention Program? (Pending, Preliminary, and Full recognition are all eligible to apply.)
     2. Is your program located in North Carolina, and serving North Carolina residents?
     3. Are you a non-profit organization or public institution (not a for-profit organization nor an individual without a DPRP number)?

If chosen, how will we receive this funding?

The funding will be disbursed on a class by class basis. Each time you have a class begin Phase 1, you will receive a $230 reimbursement per person enrolled in that class. Each time a class begins Phase 2, you will receive $200 per person enrolled. Therefore, your application should request funds on the basis of your expected enrollment over the grant period.

Reimbursement can be requested for distributed participant incentives, up to a maximum of $100 per participant, according to the requirements and schedule listed in Appendix B of the RFA. 

Additionally, organizations may request reimbursement for social supports for participants, including providing childcare and transportation such as gas or bus cards. Please see the RFA and budget template for details.

Are Minority DPP sites eligible to apply?

If your organization falls within the other eligibility criteria, you are eligible to apply for new classes. Classes that are funded by Minority DPP cannot also be listed for reimbursement in this program; however, if you expand to add additional classes that are not funded by Minority DPP, those can be included in this program. 

Can we have Medicare eligible participants in the same class as participants funded by this RFA?

A class can be provided to both Medicare participants and participants covered through this RFA, but the same participants cannot be funded by both funding sources. Be sure to include the total class size you’re expecting with the Medicare recipients as well in the Participant Enrollment Funding Narrative section of the budget.

What can the funding be used for?

As indicated in the budget template, funding will be provided on a reimbursement basis. There will be additional funding specifically for participant incentives and social supports. 

The reimbursements based on participant enrollment can be used for whatever program expenses are incurred in running the program, including but not limited to: staff salary, printed materials, A1c testing.

Can I subcontract with others as part of this contract?

Applicants are not allowed to subcontract with other organizations to complete the work described in the contract and RFA. Subcontracting with individuals is allowed as part of the expected DPP programming. Examples may include individual lifestyle coaches, individual childcare providers, and the like.
