Project Description

Why a community-driven approach to healthy living?

The Health Department supports community-driven change in two ways:

Healthy Living Grantees: neighborhood-based and culturally-based communities carry out projects to make it easier for residents to eat healthy foods, exercise, and live smoke-free. Check back soon to learn about funded projects!

Resources and Education: we assist groups that would like to carry out a healthy living project. Examples include assisting groups in adopting healthy food policies or providing connections to biking and walking resources. The Health Department is developing resources that community groups can use to carry out projects. Groups can also contact the Health Department with questions or requests for assistance on their own projects.
