Tips for New Program Coordinators
The information on this webpage is intended primarily for SDPI Program Coordinators, but other program staff may find it useful. Use this checklist to learn more about and get involved in your SDPI Community-Directed grant.
1. Review your program's Notice of Award (NoA): Find your program’s latest NoA issuing new funds to determine the following:
Find your grant number: Referencing your program’s grant number will help you and others find your program more efficiently. This number can be found on the first page upper left hand corner of your NoA. Due to recent changes in grant numbers, check GrantSolutions
to confirm your program’s latest grant number.
Read the entire NoA, including the Terms and Conditions: The Terms and Conditions provide information and requirements about the business and programmatic aspect of the grant.
2. Introduce yourself: Ensure that the following have your contact information:
Division of Diabetes: Manages the programmatic aspect of your grant including the content of your reports, Best Practices, project narrative of your applications, and this website. Contact us at IHSDDTPSDPICommunity@ihs.gov.
Area Diabetes Consultant (ADC): ADCs are located in your IHS Area and can provide programmatic and clinical assistance with your grant. Your ADC works more closely with your program so you will want to contact them regarding questions that are more specific to your program. Find your ADC’s contact information on the ADC Directory.
Division of Grants Management (DGM): Manages the business aspect of your grant including content of the standard forms (SF), grants policy, and GrantSolutions. Your latest NoA Terms and Conditions will also provide contact information for your program's Grants Management Specialist (GMS) or you can call DGM at (301) 443-5204.
3. Get Access to GrantSolutions: GrantSolutions is a web-based grants management system that will contain your program’s recent applications and NoAs. Check with your program first, then contact Paul Gettys at (301) 443-2114.
