Healthy Community Awards

Healthy Community Awards

The health of a population is related to the community environment where people live, work, learn and play. The Healthy Ohio Healthy Community Award recognizes the outstanding achievements of communities that are actively pursuing efforts to create healthier communities. Improving the community environment related to tobacco use and exposure, increasing healthy eating, and active living makes the healthy choice the easy choice for all community members.

The 2016 Healthy Community Award application is now available here. All applications are due on October 14, 2016.
