California Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant

The administration of the Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant (PHHSBG) includes coordination of activities and funds for multiple programs housed between CDPH and the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) to address California's unique public health needs and challenges by using innovative and community-driven methods. The goals of PHHSBG include addressing emerging health issues and gaps; decreasing premature death and disabilities; working to achieve health equity and eliminate health disparities by addressing the social determinants of health; supporting local programs to achieve healthy communities; and establishing data and surveillance systems to monitor the health status of targeted populations.

PHHSBG provides all 50 states, the District of Columbia, two American Indian tribes, and eight U.S. territories with funding to address their unique public health needs in innovative and locally defined ways. PHHSBG gives grantees the flexibility to use funds to respond rapidly to emerging health issues and to fill funding gaps in programs that deal with leading causes of death and disability
