The Division of Community Health manages three awards that total nearly $94 million and support 93 awardees that include large and small cities and counties, tribes, tribal organizations, and national and community organizations. These awards support cross-cutting programs to prevent and control chronic diseases and improve community health:
PICH awardees are implementing population-based strategies, tailored to individual community needs, across various settings (community institutions/ organizations, health care facilities, schools, and worksites), to create greater access to healthier environments. With the goal of reducing chronic disease prevalence and related risk factors, PICH is expected to improve health outcomes for people across the country.
This initiative supports national organizations and their local chapters/affiliates in building and strengthening community infrastructure to implement population based strategies to improve community health.
REACH awardees use tailored community-based and participatory approaches to identify, develop, and disseminate effective strategies for addressing health disparities in racial and ethnic communities. Strategies focus on proper nutrition, less tobacco use and exposure, physical activity, chronic disease prevention, and risk reduction and management.
