Healthy Communities for Arizona
Where we live, learn, work and play has a greater impact on how long and how well we live than individual behaviors or health care. To improve the health and well-being of Arizonans, we know that we must change the underlying conditions where people live.
The Arizona Partnership for Healthy Communities is a statewide collaboration of more than 30 nonprofits, foundations, businesses, and government agencies. Our vision is an Arizona where all communities are healthy places to live.
Learn more about the Live Well Arizona Incubator, our collaboration with Vitalyst Health Foundation, designed to catalyze place-based, cross-sector collaborations that tackle opportunities to improve community well-being and health. Applications are due October 16, 2020.

About the Partnership
The Arizona Partnership for Healthy Communities plans to create multi-sector collaborations by bringing together the public health, housing, transportation, community development, and economic development fields. Our unique approach brings the private and public sectors together to ensure that banks, health insurers, and health care providers are active partners alongside the government and nonprofit sectors.
