Stanislaus County Community Transformation Grant (CTG)

The Community Transformation Grant (CTG) was created through the Affordable Care Act’s Prevention and Public Health Fund and supported fiscally by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CTG gives communities an important opportunity to develop and implement initiatives to reduce risk factors responsible for chronic diseases, the leading causes of death and disability.

As the nation’s public health agency, CDC’s mission is to promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability. To that end, one of CDC’s five priorities is to advance evidence-based health policies. Environmental, Systems and Infrastructures Changes, provide solutions to an identified problem or need and is a core function of public health. As a CTG recipient, Stanislaus County Health Services Agency will focus on sustainable, population-wide evidence and practice-based changes in the communities of Stanislaus County.
