Cleveland One of 50 Communities in Healthiest Cities Challenge
The City of Cleveland Health Department is one of 50 grantees in the Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge.  A collaboration among APHA, the Aetna Foundation, National Association of Counties and CEOs for Cities, the Challenge is an initiative to award the programs and people making a difference and working across sectors to build healthier communities. Small and mid-sized U.S. cities and counties as well as federally recognized tribes are competing over the course of several years to develop practical, evidence-based strategies to improve measurable health outcomes and promote health and wellness, equity and social interaction. With more than 100 cities, counties, tribal communities, universities and organizations applying for grant funding, 50 communities were chosen to receive $10,000 seed grants to fund their proposed programs in October.
