The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) and New York Community Trust (NYCT) launched the Healthy Neighborhoods initiative to address some of the underlying problems that have affected the health of New York State communities and to support them to become places that are healthier and more active. Through this initiative, NYSHealth is supporting six Healthy Neighborhoods Fund communities across the State. NYCT is partnering with NYSHealth in a complementary initiative, South Bronx Healthy and Livable Neighborhoods, to invest in three neighborhoods in the South Bronx. This collaborative Healthy Neighborhoods initiative aims to improve access to healthy, affordable food; improve access to safe places where residents can exercise and be active; connect children and adults to programs that support healthy behaviors; and make use of City agency resources to improve health and wellness in New York communities.
