The County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) received more than $9 million for a Community Transformation Grant (CTG) over a three-year period beginning in October 2011. Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CTG award directly followed Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW), a previous two-year CDC grant that awarded the County of San Diego a total of $17.8 million.
Through CTG, HHSA advanced its objectives to promote smoke-free environments, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, address social and emotional wellness, establish linkages between clinical settings and the community, and create healthy, safe physical environments. The accomplishments made possible by CTG contributed to the County of San Diego’s comprehensive chronic disease prevention approaches, which are collectively referred to as Healthy Works.
The County of San Diego HHSA worked with several locally contracted partners to execute CTG efforts:
- Be There San Diego Initiative
- Chula Vista Elementary School District
- International Rescue Committee
- San Diego Association of Governments
- San Diego Unified School District
- Social Advocates for Youth, San Diego
- University of California, San Diego⎼Center for Community Health
