The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announces the availability of fiscal year 2024 funds. This opportunity provides financial and technical aid to help communities monitor behavioral risk factors and chronic health conditions among adults in the United States and territories. The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) plays a crucial role in public health surveillance. It focuses primarily on adults over the age of 18 who do not live in institutions.

The BRFSS is sometimes the only source of state or territory-specific risk behavior data. It is used by policymakers, researchers, academics, and the public.

Currently, the District of Columbia, all 50 U.S. states, several territories, and freely associated states take part in the BRFSS, demonstrating its wide implementation and significance. This effort helps monitor the prevalence of health risk behaviors linked to chronic health problems, preventable injuries, and other emerging health threats.
