California Reducing Disparities Project


The California Department of Public Health’s Office of Health Equity has rolled out the  California Reducing Disparities Project (CRDP), Phase II. The Mental Health Services Act of 2004 funded CRDP to reduce or eliminate mental health disparities and improve mental health for five populations in California: African American; Asian Pacific Islander (API); Latino/a; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) and Native Americans (Native Californians and other American Indians and Alaska Natives).

As Native American Technical Assistance Provider (NATAP), The PIRE team primarily works with the seven pilot projects with community-defined effective practices (CDEPs) that support California American Indian and Alaska Native communities. We will work intensively with the pilot projects to promote strategic planning, effective implementation, rigorous evaluation, successful scaling-up, and ongoing sustainability.
