Active Living Hennepin County’s Creating Healthier Communities funding and support initiative recognizes that cities play a unique role in influencing the health of their residents. This initiative will help Osseo improve its residents' health by increasing access to active living and healthy food and reducing exposure to tobacco. Funds will support initiatives that create changes in policies, systems or environments to make the healthy choice the easy choice, and will help cities to weave health into their comprehensive plan. Community engagement is a priority of this project, and funding and technical assistance will be available to involve members of the community to shape the project and its outcomes.
