Community Transformation Grants (CTG)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues its long-standing dedication to improving the health and wellness of all Americans through the Community Transformation Grant (CTG) Program. CDC supports and enables awardees to design and implement community-level programs that prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. The program is expected to improve the health of more than 4 out of 10 U.S. citizens - about 130 million Americans.

OPHA received $8,500 from the American Public Health Association, a National Dissemination and Support Initiative CTG awardee, to disseminate and amplify successful program models and activities in the areas of tobacco-free living, active living and healthy eating, clinical and other preventive services, social and emotional wellness, and healthy and safe physical environments.
