REACH Across the U.S. (REACH U.S.) is a national, multilevel program that serves as the cornerstone of CDC’s efforts to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health. Through REACH U.S., CDC supports 40 grantee partners that establish community-based programs and culturally-appropriate interventions to eliminate health disparities among the following racial and ethnic groups: African Americans, American Indians, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans, Alaska Natives, and Pacific Islanders.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health, in 2007, received a five-year cooperative agreement from the CDC's REACH US initiative. Southern Plains REACH US will continue to focus on decreasing the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease among American Indians. The target area is expanding to include Tribes in Kansas and Texas as well as in Oklahoma. Legacy Projects are selected annually.
