HHS announces available funding of $70 million for Community Transformation Grants
HHS has announced available funding of $70 million to improve the health of small communities across the nation. Grants will be awarded to governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations across a variety of sectors in an effort to save lives and control the nation’s growing health care costs associated with preventable chronic diseases. The CTG Small Communities Program grantees will work toward one or more of the five outcome measures described in Section 4201 of the Affordable Care Act: changes in weight, proper nutrition, physical activity, tobacco use and social and emotional well-being. Funding is being disbursed for interventions that will target populations (or population subgroups) of up to 500,000 in neighborhoods, school districts, villages, towns, cities and counties.
