Our Policy Package

2.0 Policy Package

CityHealth is pleased to announce a brand-new package of policy solutions designed to build vibrant, equitable cities in which everyone lives longer, healthier lives. These 12 policies are tried and tested solutions that help cities provide access for everyone to have a safe place to live, a healthy body and mind, and a thriving environment.

At the end of summer 2021, CityHealth will release more information on these policies, including policy criteria, the overall medal algorithm, and technical assistance opportunities.

CityHealth will evaluate cities on the 2.0 Policy Package starting in 2022.
