NHLBI’s The Heart Truth® 2021-2022 Community Subcontract Program

AI manual cover The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s (NHLBI) The Heart Truth® Community
Subcontract Program is seeking proposals from community-based and/or tribal programs to implement and assess Honoring the Gift of Heart Health,
a health educator’s curriculum for American Indian and Alaska Native communities.

Honoring the Gift of Heart Health has been used by American Indian and Alaska Native communities since 2006. The Heart Truth is interested in updating the curricula and supporting materials to ensure they are relevant and meet the current heart health
education needs of these communities. The Heart Truth is specifically seeking proposals from community and tribal organizations
to assess and implement the current Honoring the Gift of Heart Health materials, messaging, and resources. Assessment
forms will be provided.

One-year pilot programs should focus on using Honoring the Gift of Heart Health to train health educators to implement heart
health education programs within American Indian and Alaska Native communities, and/or to use the manual and supporting materials
to implement a heart health education program with community members.

The Heart Truth program plans to award multiple subcontracts. The number of awards will be dependent on the number of
applications received and funds available.
