NACDD supports Prevent Block
NACDD would like to express our support for the Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant (Prevent Block). We feel that the consequences of eliminating this program are profound, and that doing so will only further jeopardize public health programs already strained by tightening budgets. We hope that you will consider the impact on public health when you determine how to move forward with the Prevent Block.
The Prevent Block is a vital source of funding for state and local public health agencies. This unique funding gives states the autonomy and flexibility to solve state problems and address community level needs, while still being held accountable for demonstrating the local, state, and national impact of this investment.
