Community Transformation Grants

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has released a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) aimed to help communities reduce chronic disease and address health inequities. Funding is available to support evidence and practice-based community and clinical prevention and wellness strategies that lead to measurable health outcomes to reduce chronic disease rates, tobacco use and obesity. The grant covers five years and 75 communities throughout the U.S. will be awarded. Successful implementation category applicants will receive an estimated $500,000 to $10,000,000 a year for each of the five years.

This is an unprecedented opportunity for our community, and the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness (LMPHW) is leading an effort to apply. If your organization is interested in applying as a community partner, LMPHW is accepting applications until June 17th, 2011 4:00pm.
