Community Transformation Grants

The ACA created the new Community Transformation Grants Program (CTG), which will be administered by the Centers on Disease and Prevention (CDC). Through this program, which is funded by the ACA's Prevention and Public Health Fund, the CDC continues its long-standing dedication to improving the health and wellness of all Americans. The goal is to create healthier communities, with a focus on chronic disease prevention, and with help from HHS over $103 million in CTG funding was administered in 2011 to states and communities to help achieve this goal. The funding will support states and communities that strive to tackle the underlying causes of poor health so Americans can lead healthier, more productive lives.
