In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded $9.37 million to five national organizations representing two categories.
- Category A: Community Capacity-Building and Implementation awardees will use more than 75% of their budget to fund two cohorts of 15-20 sub-recipients, from among their chapters/affiliates, to develop or strengthen their coalitions and to implement locally driven plans that address one or more chronic disease factors.
- Category B: Dissemination and Training awardees will develop and monitor tools and trainings (e.g., educational guides, toolkits, newsletters) to support funded chapters/affiliates and their community coalitions in improving health locally.
Approach to Improving Health
This initiative supports communities in implementing population-based strategies that address the greatest predictors of chronic disease, including:
- Tobacco use and exposure.
- Physical inactivity.
- Poor nutrition.
- Lack of access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and disease management opportunities.
Examples of activities include:
- Working collaboratively to coordinate strategies and maximize the collective impact on community health.
- Increasing national and local awareness of community health.
- Ensuring that funded communities increase their capacity and achieve sustainable improvements.
- Protecting people from secondhand smoke exposure in indoor and outdoor spaces.
- Increasing opportunities for physical activity and promoting nutrition guidelines for healthy eating.
