Outreach & Education Overview

The California Sickle Cell Action Plan identified the need to increase outreach and education about SCD and SCT statewide as one of its top priorities (see Goal 2 and strategies 2.1 – 2.3). Strengthening SC education and awareness was included as a priority in AB 1105, and remained in the appropriation that Governor Newsom signed in June 2019.

This announcement will initiate a request for applications (RFA) in these three areas of need in California’s sickle cell disease (SCD) population:

  1. Emergency room education,
  2. Pain management, and
  3. Quality of life.

Applications are due on May 7, 2021 by 5PM (PST).

Please email grants@c3dibd.org with any questions.
