HHS To Award Grants Aimed at Reducing Chronic Disease
HHS recently announced plans to award $100 million in community-transformation grants under the federal health reform law for projects seeking to reduce chronic diseases. The five-year grants will focus on areas such as emotional wellness, healthy eating, preventive services, safe environments and tobacco-free living. The money will fund up to 75 grants, and at least 20% of the funds will go to rural and frontier communities.
