HHS has made available $120 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds for prevention and wellness programs for states and territories. In all, the comprehensive Communities Putting Prevention to Work initiative will make $650 million available for public health efforts to address obesity, increase physical activity, improve nutrition, and decrease smoking. The $120 million in cooperative agreements will be awarded to states and territories for three components: statewide policy and environmental change, tobacco cessation through quitlines and media campaigns, and special initiatives to create health-promoting policies and environments. For the first two components, dollar amounts awarded to each state and territory will be based on population size and number of smokers. For the third component, states will app ly for special funds through a competitive process based on the potential health impact of the proposed activities. States and territories will have two years to complete their work.
