Successful applicants might undertake the following activities in projects supported through this RFP. Examples may include:

- Training of lifestyle coaches in organizations with the infrastructure and track record to deliver lifestyle interventions

- Activities related to managing referrals and coordinating classes.
In addition to the funding, the SD DOH will provide resources and technical assistance to awardees to implement the National DPP. This may include assistance in identification and recruitment strategies of participants as well as referring partner organizations, assistance with understanding and upholding the National DPP standards, observing occasional DPP sessions to monitor progress, and assistance with components of the evaluation process during and at the completion of the project period.
