Wednesday, August 21st, 2019
The National League of Cities (NLC) launched Cities of Opportunity to strengthen city leader’s capacity to work in a more holistic way to address root causes of poor health. City leaders are uniquely positioned to advance cross-cutting approaches that address issues that affect the health of their residents and the vibrancy of their city. With funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, NLC recruited 12 cities in a competitive application process to pilot the initiative. Participating cities included: Atlanta; Birmingham, Alabama; Charlotte, North Carolina; East Point, Georgia; Fort Collins, Colorado; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Hopewell, Virginia; Huntington, West Virginia; Lansing, Michigan; New Orleans; Rancho Cucamonga, California; and Roanoke, Virginia.
