Community Transformation Grant
The Community Transformation Grant (CTG) in Minnesota is helping control health care spending and create a healthier future.
CTG will succeed by decreasing chronic diseases--such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes--through decreasing exposure to tobacco, increasing physical activity and healthy eating, and improving health care preventative services.
In 2011 Minnesota was awarded CTG by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Minnesota was awarded $3.6 million per year for five years through a highly competitive process. The five-year CTG project period runs through September 2016.
CTG will support health improvement activities in local communities, building on strengths, minimizing duplication of efforts and maximizing impact.
Five current grantees with a high need and proven capacity were chosen, representing a large region of Northern Minnesota:
- Carlton-Cook-Lake-St. Louis-Aitkin-Itasca-Koochiching
- Clay-Wilkin-Becker-Otter Tail
- Leech Lake Tribal Community
- North Country-Polk-Mahnomen-Norman
