Community Transformation Initiative
Welcome to the Community Transformation Initiative (CTI) web page. Community Transformation is a movement taking place across the nation, including Houston/Harris County. Communities are working together to improve livability to support public health efforts to reduce chronic diseases, the leading causes of death and disability. In 2011, the Houston Department of Health and Human Services (HDHHS) was awarded the Community Transformation Grant for capacity building by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CTI is led by HDHHS in partnership with Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services (HCPHES). CTI focuses on sustainable policy, built environment, and infrastructure or systems changes across the City of Houston and Harris County.
