CA Healthy Cities and Communities
A Healthy City/Community promotes a positive physical, social and economic environment that supports the well-being of its members. The Program brokers programmatic and financial resources by working closely with local, regional and statewide organizations to support Healthy Cities and Communities efforts throughout the state. Healthy Cities and Communities have leveraged over $40 million and obtained valuable community building resources for local Healthy City/Community efforts.
