About the Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge

APHA, with funding from the Aetna Foundation, works in partnership with the National Association of Counties and Healthy Places by Design to support 20 communities across 11 states to address local health challenges through the Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge.

Communities in this new iteration of the Challenge will receive grant funds and technical assistance over two years so they can build partnerships that include residents, local government, nonprofit partners, businesses and more to advance health equity.
