Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map in Action: Making an Impact in Communities

Since the Healthy Brian Initiative (HBI) was established in 2005, the Alzheimer’s Association and CDC have worked closely together to develop and implement the national public health strategy for brain health — the HBI Road Map Series guides this effort. Learn more about how the HBI Road Map combined with the BOLD Public Health Program Awards are making an impact in local communities across the U.S.

The BOLD Public Health Program Awards provide funding to state and local health departments and tribal health organizations to implement the HBI Road Map Series, advance public health efforts on brain health, dementia and caregiving. This funding is supported by the Building Our Largest Dementia (BOLD) Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act. Since its enactment, the CDC has made 66 awards to fund 45 health departments which allowed health departments to prioritize public health interventions across the life course and continuum of dementia.

The Healthy Brain Initiative and the development and implementation of the HBI Road Map Series is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $11,433,732 with 100% funded by CDC/HHS.
