CDC Community Transformation Grants
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced its Community Transformation Grants, authorized under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. These grants will provide a total of $900 million for applicants in up to 75 jurisdictions, tribes, and territories. The program focuses on improving public health and reducing death and disability through policy, environmental, programmatic, and infrastructure changes related to weight, proper nutrition, physical activity, tobacco use, and emotional well-being and mental health.
Letters of Intent (LOIs) must be received by June 6, and applications are due on July 15. To provide assistance in applying, the CDC is hosting a series of three pre-LOI submission conference calls on May 25 and another series of three post-LOI submission conference calls on June 14.
