Prevention and Public Health Fund

The Affordable Care Act established the Prevention and Public Health Fund to provide expanded and sustained national investments in prevention and public health, to improve health outcomes, and to enhance health care quality. To date, the Fund has invested in a broad range of evidence-based activities including community and clinical prevention initiatives; research, surveillance and tracking; public health infrastructure; immunizations and screenings; tobacco prevention; and public health workforce and training.

Current Prevention and Public Helath Fund grant opportunities will be posted on AUCD's Health Reform Hub. For historical infomation, see the Prevention and Public Health Fund Investments in FY 2012 and State-by-State map of Prevention and Public Health Investments.
