In addition to the funds that were made available to communities through Communities Putting Prevention to work (CPPW), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) made more than $119 million available to states and U.S. territories to support public health efforts to reduce obesity, increase physical activity, improve nutrition, and decrease smoking. These funds were made available in three components. Which include: Component I $44.6 million: Statewide Policy and Environmental Change: All 50 states, D.C. and six territories received funding to promote state-wide policy and environmental changes that support and institutionalize healthy behaviors related to obesity and tobacco control. Component II $30 million: Competitive Special Policy and Environmental Change Initiative: 13 states received funding to implement high-impact policy, environment or system change strategies in the area of physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco. Component III: $44.3 million: Tobacco Cessation through Quitlines and Media: 49 states and one territory received funding to expand tobacco quit lines in concert with expanded cessation media campaigns. Similar to the community initiative, state awardees will employ evidence-based strategies around media, access, point of purchase, price, and social support and will design programs to improve the health of their communities through policy and environmental change over the two-years of the program.
