Community Transformation Grant (CTG) Resources
The CTGs will give priority attention to key risk factors for heart disease and stroke including tobacco use, poor diet, physical inactivity, and unhealthy weight. In addition, funded grantees will work to improve the control of high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which plays a major role in cardiovascular health. –
These activities will amplify the efforts of Million Hearts™, a national initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over the next five years. Heart disease and stroke are two of the leading causes of death in the United States. Million Hearts™ brings together communities, health systems, nonprofit organizations, federal agencies, and private-sector partners from across the country to fight heart disease and stroke.
Tools and resources from across the Division of Community Health to help your community in its efforts to improve health for all residents—from planning an initiative to reporting on its success.
