  • We are excited to apply for additional Community Transformation funding through the recently released ‘CTG Small Communities Program’.  The small-community investments are part of the Community Transformation Grant (CTG) program, a comprehensive prevention and wellness initiative launched in 2011 by HHS and administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CTG Small Communities program grant funds are for 2 year, focused interventions targeting populations of up to 500,000 in neighborhoods or communities. We have selected four Houston communities in which to focus due to high levels of childhood obesity, high rates of chronic disease, and high poverty levels. They are as follows:
  • ·         Near Northside-5th Ward
  • ·        Northline-Eastex
  • ·        Sunnyside-Greater Hobby
  • ·         3rd Ward-MacGregor-Gulfgate

As you all know, Houston/Harris County was awarded a 5-year grant under CTG Capacity Building.  Capacity building activities will continue as planned throughout the county.  CTG Small Communities funding will enhance our capacity building efforts and allow for the demonstration of targeted interventions which could be duplicated city and/or county wide.  We will find out in September if we are to receive these additional ‘implementation focused’ funds.

If you have questions regarding the CTG Small Communities Program, please email our Houston/Harris County Community Transformation Initiative, Principal Investigator:  Dr. Faith Foreman, faith.foreman@houstontx.gov.
