Healthy Places, Healthy People

HEALTHY PLACES, HEALTHY PEOPLE

Working together for healthier homes, neighborhoods, schools and workplaces.

 

Healthy Places, Healthy People (HPHP) brings together local coalitions, businesses, non-profits, schools and everyday people to create lasting changes that make it easier for everyone to be healthier.

The HPHP initiative was created by the feedback of community members and is staffed by the Austin/Travis County Health & Human Services Department. It is currently being funded by a federal grant called the Community Transformation Grant. Its purpose is to reduce the prevalence of chronic disease, especially in disparate populations, through systems and environmental changes.

  • HPHP supports long lasting changes in our community’s environment that make it easier for all people to get more active and eat healthier.
  • HPHP promotes access to local services and programs that help organizations and individuals become healthier.
  • HPHP actively supports and promotes collaboration to reverse the alarming trends of chronic disease and healthcare costs.
