From 2011 to 2014, the Community Transformation Grant (CTG) Program helped to improve the health and wellness of all Americans.

The program helped communities design and carry out local programs that prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Investing in Healthier Communities

In 2011, CDC gave $103 million to 61 state and local governments, tribes and territories, and nonprofit organizations in 36 states. CDC also gave nearly $4 million to 6 national networks of community-based organizations.

CTG awardees worked with partners from many sectors including:

  • Schools and school districts
  • Transportation experts
  • Businesses
  • Faith-based organizations

Awardees also funded local organizations to help make healthy changes in their communities.

In 2012, CTG added the Small Communities Program. More than $70 million went to 40 neighborhoods, school districts, villages, towns, cities, and counties with fewer than 500,000 people. These grants help smaller communities make lasting changes to reduce health gaps and expand services to prevent and manage chronic diseases.
