CDC Grants Public Health Programs $42 Million
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded $42.5 million for 94 public health services delivery improvement projects at state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments.
"These funds are a down payment on improving public health services across the nation," says Judith A. Monroe, MD, CDC's deputy director for state, tribal, local and territorial support. "With these funds, we will help our nation's public health departments work more effectively and efficiently to detect and respond to public health problems. This program will strengthen the nation's public health system and our ability to improve the health and well being of all Americans."
The funding awards—ranging from $100,000 to $2 million—come through the Prevention and Public Health Fund created by the Affordable Care Act and will be distributed to 49 states, eight federally recognized tribes, Washington, DC, nine large local health departments, five territories, and three Affiliated Pacific Island jurisdictions.
