PPHF 2012: Community Transformation GrantsSmall Communities Program financed solely by 2012 Public P

The overarching purpose of this program is to prevent heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes and other leading chronic disease-related causes of death or disability through evidence and practice-based policy, environmental, programmatic, and infrastructure changes in small communities that improve health
and health behaviors among an intervention population.

This program aims to achieve this by creating healthier communities through funding to governmental and nongovernmental agencies and organizations, from multiple sectors, to take actions that align with their mission and ongoing responsibility in partnership with agencies and organizations in other sectors, to enhance the health of the people they serve.

This FOA will support key evidence- and practice-based policy, environmental, programmatic and infrastructure changes, in small communities (populations less than 500,000), and tribes, including in rural and frontier areas, to achieve demonstrated progress in one or more the following five outcome measures outlined in the Affordable Care Act: 1) changes in weight, 2) changes in proper nutrition, 3) changes in physical activity, 4) changes in tobacco use prevalence, and 5) changes in emotional well-being and overall mental health, as well as other program-specific measures related to local CTIP performance monitoring and evaluation.

Recipients must measure and demonstrate changes in the outcome measures they choose to address.

Progress toward the grantee selected ACA outcome measures must be assessed during each year of funding.

A report describing the status of the selected measures addressed under this grant must be submitted to CDC in the first and second year of this grant award.
More specific goals within these broad goal areas will be provided in funding.
