About Our Policies

2.0 Policy Package

In July 2021, CityHealth announced a brand new package of 12 tried and tested policy solutions that will help cities provide access for everyone to have a safe place to live, a healthy body and mind, and a thriving environment.

CityHealth will evaluate cities on the 2.0 Policy Package starting in 2022. Find out more information, including medal criteria, by clicking on the policies below.

CityHealth is Adding New Cities in 2022!

CityHealth currently partners with the nation’s 40 largest cities and works closely with leaders who want to improve health policy in their city. Experts work with city leaders to advance a package of nine evidence-based policies that help create thriving communities. CityHealth awards each city gold, silver, and bronze medals, depending on the strength and quality of the policy.

With this policy package and work, CityHealth provides city leaders with a pragmatic, achievable, yet aspirational, package of policies that can help build a more prosperous and vibrant community.
