Modern Healthcare

HHS made available more than $100 million to fund up to 75 community-transformation grants that would back projects aimed at reducing chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. Grants will focus on five areas: tobacco-free living; active living and healthy eating; quality clinical and other preventive services; social and emotional wellness; and healthy and safe physical environments, according to an HHS news release. The grant applications must rely on evidence-based strategies and ensure that their activities not only have broad population impact, but also help address health disparities.
