Highlights from the
Community Transformation Grant for Prince George's County, Maryland

In October 2012, the Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHI) received a two-year Community Transformation Grant (CTG) Small Communities Program grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to reduce chronic disease rates and improve health in Prince George's County.

Seven diverse strategies focused on the communities of Langley Park, Suitland/Coral Hills, and Bladensburg/East Riverdale, which were selected to build on the County Executive's Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative (TNI). These strategies supported cross-sector collaboration within county government, increased access to affordable healthy foods, strengthened the network of Community Health Workers (CHWs) that serve county residents, and improved walkability and connectivity in neighborhoods surrounding community centers. Three additional mini-grants were awarded to address smoking policies in County housing, wellness policies in public schools, and pedestrian safety.
