Thursday, November 19, 2015

The Reinvestment Fund and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) announced today the launch of Invest Health, a pioneering, multi-sector initiative that will align people, strategies and capital to improve health in cities across the country. The initiative aims to transform the way city leaders work together to help all communities thrive, with specific attention to factors that drive health in low-income neighborhoods, including a scarcity of quality jobs, affordable housing and nutritious food, high crime rates and unhealthy environmental conditions.

Invest Health will support new partnerships with leaders representing up to 50 mid-sized cities across the nation and will work to align people, strategies and capital to improve that factors that drive health in low-income neighborhoods from a scarcity of quality jobs, affordable housing and nutritious food, to high crime rates and unhealthy environmental conditions.

Participating cities will be selected through a competitive process that begins in mid-December 2015.
