DHPE is pleased to be one of five CDC funded national organizations

CDC announced the award today of a new set of community prevention grants by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The agency announced 193 awards, totaling $212 million, across all 50 states which will be used to fund evidence-based and innovative partnership approaches to improve the health of Americans. A majority of these grants are from the Prevention and Public Health Fund - the nation's first mandatory investment toward preventing disease and illness. To view state-by-state releases.

DHPE is pleased to be one of five funded national organizations. We will provide TA to the sub-recipients selected by the American Heart Association, National WIC Directors, and an association of community planners. One of our tasks is to ensure that these recipients (yet to be named) are connected with their state health agency. Stay tuned.

Congratulations to all those DHPE members who also received awards. Now the work begins!
