In an age of limited resources, local governments partner with non-profit organizations to improve the quality of life in their communities and meet the needs of underserved populations.

  • The Metropolitan Health District of San Antonio, TX, partnered with Goodwill Industries to link preventive care and health education to existing Goodwill services.
  • Two non-profit groups worked with Albany, OR, to bring the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program to Albany. The program, funded in part by the Federal Highway Administration, improves kids’ health by motivating them to be more active, makes streets safer, and reduces traffic congestion and air pollution.
