Panel Discussion
Created by the Affordable Care Act, the Community Transformation Grants (CTG) program supports States and communities that tackle the root causes of poor health so Americans can lead healthier, more productive lives. In this session, invited program grantees will discuss their efforts to date, their success, and their lessons learned from successful cross-sectoral collaborations.
Session Objectives: Describe innovative approaches to building lasting networks through multilevel organizations to address chronic disease through policy and systems change. Compare their desired community initiatives and infrastructure to what Washington state CTG awardees have learned about the first years of grant implementation. Describe the CTG program and the Washington state model of cross-communication between CTG awardees.
