Recipient Health Department Profiles‎

These profiles provide a summary of PHIG funding from November 2022 to January 2024 for the grant's three strategy areas (workforce, foundational capabilities, and data modernization).

Funding recipients

Funding was awarded to:

  1. One hundred seven (107) public health departments in all 50 states, Washington D.C., 8 territories/freely associated states, and 48 large localities (cities serving a population of 400,000 or more and counties serving a population of 2,000,000 or more based on the 2020 U.S. Census). Award amounts were based on a funding formula that included population size and community resilience. As of January 2024, a total of $4.01 billion for health departments [$3.685 billion in fiscal year (FY)23 and $325 million in FY24] has been awarded. Recipient-specific information is provided on the Health Department Profiles.
  2. Three national partners that support the work of the 107 funded health departments. The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI), and Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) received a total of $340 million ($155 million in FY23 and $185 million in FY24). These organizations provide training and technical assistance, evaluate the program, and facilitate coordination and communication across recipients and CDC.

Strategies and outcomes

The three strategies of this grant are Workforce, Foundational Capabilities, and Data Modernization. Recipients are expected to achieve several key outcomes by the end of the 5-year performance period (see image below). Ultimately, this grant will lead to accelerated prevention, preparedness, and response to emerging health threats. Improved outcomes in other public health areas are also anticipated.

All work done as part of this grant is grounded in three key principles:

  1. Data and evidence drive planning and implementation.
  2. Partnerships play a critical role in grant program success.
  3. Resources are directed to support diversity and health equity.
