Create a Healthier Niagara Falls Collaborative, Inc.
Building Healthy Communities
October 2016 – March 2017
To tackle some of the underlying problems that have affected the health of communities, NYSHealth launched the Healthy Neighborhoods Fund initiative to help New York State communities become healthier and more active places.
Through the Healthy Neighborhoods Fund, NYSHealth is supporting six communities across the State in their efforts to increase access to healthy, affordable food; improve access to safe places where residents can exercise and be active; and connect children and adults to programs that support healthy behaviors. In 2015, NYSHealth awarded Create a Healthier Niagara Falls Collaborative a grant to participate in this initiative.
As part of a technical assistance grant to support the Collaborative in its efforts, NYSHealth awarded it a grant in 2016 to work with a communications firm to define its communications priorities and develop a strategic communications plan.
