Funded National Networks

The National Dissemination and Support Initiative of the Community Transformation Grants (CTG) program will support, disseminate, and amplify the evidence-based strategies of the CTG program in communities nationwide, including rural and frontier areas and in those areas with health disparities. Six (6) national networks of community-based organizations received a total of nearly $4 million under two separate categories of funding —Dissemination and Acceleration.

Dissemination grantees will support, disseminate, and amplify the evidence-based strategies of the CTG program nationally. Funded organizations will engage and collaborate with governmental, private, and non-governmental sectors and work to disseminate CTG strategies within their national network of local affiliates, including reaching rural and frontier areas and those experiencing health disparities. Three (3) national networks received Dissemination awards:

  • The American Public Health Association is funded $300,000 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 among national partners and members, and accelerate the spread of CTG strategies in communities nationwide by utilizing their existing network of 53 state and regional affiliates. The Association intends to focus this work on communities with less than 500,000 persons.
  • The Asian Pacific Partners for Empowerment, Advocacy and Leadership, a minority serving organization, is funded $300,000 to disseminate strategies addressing tobacco-free living, active living and healthy eating, clinical and other preventive services, social and emotional wellness, and healthy and safe physical environments among Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders nationwide.
  • The Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) is funded $300,000 to address tobacco use, heart disease, and stroke by disseminating community training strategies regarding tobacco-free living nationwide.


Acceleration awards are intended to help spread CTG work across the country and in particular to help reach rural and frontier areas and areas with health disparities. Funded organizations are required to award at least 50% of their funds to local affiliates to support local communities to assess and address CTG health priorities. Three (3) national networks received Acceleration awards:

  • The American Lung Association is funded $800,000 to address the areas of tobacco-free living and healthy and safe physical environments by supporting smoke-free communities in underserved areas within several states across the country.
  • The National REACH Coalition, a minority serving organization, is funded $900,000 to reach communities through a national dissemination and intervention project to transform local service paradigms and improve health. The Coalition will address strategies 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—with a primary focus on African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaskan Native populations.
  • YMCA of the USA is funded $1,300,000 to advance strategies related to tobacco-free living, active living and healthy eating, clinical and other preventive services, social and emotional wellness, and healthy and safe physical environments, with a focus on serving African-American and Hispanics/Latinos nationwide.
