Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant

The Preventive Health and Health Services (PHHS) Block Grant provides all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 2 American Indian tribes, and 8 US territories with funding to address their unique public health needs in innovative and locally defined ways. This program gives grantees the flexibility to use funds to respond rapidly to emerging health issues and to fill funding gaps in programs that deal with leading causes of death and disability. The PHHS Block Grant is administered by CDC’s Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support.
