Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell says the state has received a $1 million federal grant to fund public health prevention and awareness programs.

Rell announced Sunday that the grant money will be used to help improve HIV testing and offer more support for state residents looking to quit smoking.

More than $500,000 of the money will also be used to help state and local medical departments better monitor health trends and disease outbreaks.

The governor said the grant will be awarded over five years and was given to the state as part of the federal health care reform law.
