Diabetes Self- Management Education Mini Grant Funding Announcement

August 18, 2021




We are pleased to announce that the Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) mini-grant funding period is now open. The DSME mini-grant ranges from $5,000 to $20,000 to establish, build, achieve accreditation for, sustain, increase access to, or expand DSME programs serving adults in Florida. The grant period is from approximately November 15, 2021-June 17, 2022. Applications are due September 30th.

The purpose of this funding is to reduce health inequity in areas with limited or no access to quality DSME services and to increase organizations’ ability to provide quality diabetes self-management education services.  These areas include rural communities without a recognized or accredited DSME program and populations which experience high rates of type 2 diabetes, its complications, and diabetes-related death.  This funding is also available to organizations which are providing diabetes education or wish to provide diabetes education, even if they are neither DSME accredited/recognized nor plan to work towards DSME accreditation/recognition. The inclusion of Community Health Workers in this process is encouraged.

Applicants are required to apply via completion of an application survey on Survey Monkey that is located at:
