Grants to USA and Territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, public schools, and municipal institutions for community-based programs to improve cardiovascular health. Funding is primarily intended to support organizations that have not previously received support through this program. CCH-funded programs use culturally appropriate approaches with measurable outcomes to address specific unmet needs of communities across the country, especially underserved communities.
The intent of the grants is to support innovative initiatives or programs at the community level to help improve cardiovascular health in the community during the grant year and beyond. The Foundation's aim is for funded programs to maximize the benefit to participants and to work toward sustainability beyond the funding.

CCH Next Generation may provide limited grant funding to previously-funded organizations on an invitation basis to support dissemination, sustainability and/or mentorship activities.
