Healthy Places by Design


This model highlights the importance of a community’s context, defines six essential practices for success, and outlines a 3P Action Cycle: Partner, Prepare, and Progress. This can be useful to community coalitions, local leaders looking for a collaborative process to creating healthier places, and to funders seeking a tested approach for local investments.
