Planning for People
APA-MN Planning for People Initiative Funded by APA to Advance Healthy Communities
APA Minnesota Chapter has received a $60,000 grant for its’ Planning for People Initiative. The Initiative will work to create messages to help build local capacity for integrating planning and public health.
The grant funds are through APA Planners4Health Initiative part of APA’s Plan4Health three-year, $9 million program to help communities combat determinants of chronic disease – lack of physical activity and lack of access to nutritious foods. Funding for the initiative is provided through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to broadly share knowledge and resources on building coalitions with public health professionals and more strongly integrate public health into local and regional planning practices.
