Grants will be awarded to U.S. and U.S. territories government and community-based entities to develop and implement programs for populations of 500,000 or less that help mitigate chronic diseases and prevent the development of secondary conditions. Funds totaling $70,000,000 will be available to support evidence-based community health activities in order to reduce rates of heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and the like, address health disparities, and develop effective prevention programs. Long-term objectives include the reduction of death and disability due to tobacco use, heart disease, and stroke and reducing the rate of obesity through nutrition and physical activity interventions.

Grantees can target a variety of populations such as specific counties, cities, towns, and villages with up to 500,000 population or neighborhoods, sections, or subgroups of the population (e.g., children or seniors) within a metropolitan area. A variety of “policy, environmental, programmatic, and, as appropriate, infrastructure” interventions will be used in order to promote healthier lifestyles. By deploying the tools and expertise specific to their sector, working in collaboration with agencies and organizations in other sectors, grantees will accelerate and expand the reach and health impact of the policy, environmental, programmatic, and infrastructure improvements implemented under this FOA to advance community health and reduce chronic diseases, conditions, and risk factors.

Consistent with the Community Transformation Grant Program, this FOA supports the five “Strategic Directions” from the National Prevention Strategy of tobacco-free living, active living and healthy eating, high impact quality clinical and other preventive services, social and emotional wellness, and healthy and safe physical environment. Applicants may propose activities in one or more of these areas that contribute to the overall goals of the Program and result in achievement of one or more of the five outcome measures.

Applicants should incorporate the overarching “Healthy People 2020” goals in plans and strategies. These include:
• Attain high quality, longer lives free of preventable disease, disability, injury, and premature death
• Achieve health equity, eliminate health disparities, and improve the health of all groups
• Create healthy and safe physical environments that promote good health for all
• Promote quality of life, healthy development and healthy behaviors across all life stages
