The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has proposed a project that would collect and analyze cost data from participants in the Community Transformation Grant program as part of an effort to predict chronic disease outcomes and their financial impacts. In September, HHS awarded more than $103 million to 61 recipients—state, local and tribal government agencies and not-for-profit organizations—for interventions that address chronic-disease management, tobacco cessation, preventive services, healthy eating and other community wellness topics.
