Requires the CDC to award competitive Community Transformation Grants (CTGs) to eligible entities, which include state and local governmental agencies and community-based organizations. The goal of these grants is to implement evidence-based community preventive health programs.
As revised by section 10403(1) of the Senate Manager’s Amendment, sets aside 20% of the grants for rural and frontier areas. Also, pursuant to revisions delineated at section 10403(2) of the Senate Manager’s Amendment, the community transformation plan may focus on, among other things, creating healthier school environments; implementing worksite wellness programming and incentives; and ways to address the needs of special populations, including all age groups and individuals with disabilities, and individuals in urban, rural, and frontier areas.
As revised by section 10403(3) of the Senate Manager’s Amendment, authorizes (but does not appropriate) such sums as may be necessary for each of FY 2010-2014.
