The Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership is a group of sixteen leading cancer organizations in the US who have joined together to build and strengthen comprehensive cancer control (CCC) efforts across the nation.
Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) will fund and support a new 3-year initiative to improve health and reduce the burden of chronic diseases through evidence- and practice-based strategies to create or strengthen healthy environments that make it easier for people to make healthy choices and take charge of their health. Awardees will work to reduce tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, and improve access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and management opportunities. Projects will serve three types of geographic areas: large cities and urban counties, small cities and counties, and American Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages.

This 3-year initiative will support four to eight national organizations and their chapters/affiliates in building and strengthening community infrastructure to implement population-based strategies to improve the health of communities. The initiative will fund two types of projects: community capacity building and implementation awards, aimed at supporting locally driven planning and action among selected chapters/affiliates; and dissemination and training awards, aimed at providing tools and trainings to support funded chapters/affiliates and their community coalitions in improving local policies, systems, and environments.
