Minority Outreach & Technical Assistance (MOTA)

​​​​​​​FY 18 MOTA Grantees

​The purpose of the Minority Outreach and Technical Assistance (MOTA) program is to improve the health outcomes of racial and ethnic minority communities through community engagement, partnerships, outreach and technical assistance.  

MOTA programs are required to focus on one or two of the following key areas: birth outcomes, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, tobacco use, asthma, HIV/AIDS, lack of health insurance, and lack of a medical home/ non-use of medical home.  In FY 2017, the Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities, through a Request for Applications (RFA) process, funded 16 community based organizations for a two-year grant period (FY17-18).  For FY 18, 15 MOTA partners will be funded through the continuation grant application process.  Below are the 15 community based organizations funded for FY 2018.​
