The California Department of Public Health Chronic Disease Control Branch's Alzheimer's Disease Program is pleased to announce the intent to award Sacramento County Department of Public Health for a Dementia Friendly Community Initiative pilot project. The local health jurisdiction shall receive $1,700,000 under the 2021–2022 State of California Budget. The term of this contract

agreement will be October 17, 2022, through June 30, 2024.
