Healthy Cities and Counties Challenge

The Healthiest Cities and Counties Challenge (HCCC or the Challenge) is a partnership between the Aetna Foundation, the National Association of Counties, the American Public Health Association and Healthy Places by Design. In July 2020, the Challenge – a two-year, $2 million initiative – launched by welcoming 10 city and 10 county teams that are working across sectors to advance health equity and reduce disparities in chronic disease. The Challenge provides each community with flexible funds to implement their projects as well as intense technical assistance, monthly one-on-one coaching and access to a robust Peer Learning Network. Information on the County's Community Snapshot can be found here.
