The purpose of this FOA is to provide continued funding for current grantees under SO11-1102. This competing continuation will provide financial and programmatic assistance to State Health Departments to 1) continue to maintain and expand specific surveillance using telephone and multimode survey methodology of the behaviors of the general population that contribute to the occurrence of prevention of chronic diseases and injuries, 2) continue to maintain and expand the collection, analysis, and dissemination of BRFSS data to State categorical programs for their use in assessing trends, directing program planning, evaluating programs, establishing program priorities, developing policy, and targeting relevant population groups and 3) complete existing activities that would not otherwise be done because of limited time and funds.
