Creating Healthy Schools and Communities Grant

This program is a five-year grant to increase opportunities for physical activity and improved nutrition in high-need communities of New York State. This approach supports and aligns with the New York State Department of Health Prevention Agenda and the CDC New York State Physical Activity and Nutrition Program.  OCDOH partners with OC Planning and the Child Care Council of Orange County with the objectives of increasing the number of worksites and community settings that implement food service guidelines and physical activity interventions, increasing the number of schools and childcare providers that improve policies, practices, and environments for physical activity and nutrition and increasing the number of municipalities that adopt and implement community planning and active transportation interventions to increase safe and accessible physical activity.
