The ULI Partners for Health program seeks to improve community health, reduce health disparities, and advance health equity on the local level through engagement with three US-based District Councils, selected through a competitive process.
The goal of the Partners for Health program is to support deeper District Council and ULI member engagement in a key existing local initiative, identified by the District Council, that has a focus on improving health. The program will work to leverage the expertise and engagement of local ULI members and partners to help promote a culture of health in their community and gain momentum to counter health challenges.
Interested District Councils should identify an existing city-, neighborhood, or regional initiative where:
- Improving health is a primary focus or goal
- Advancing health equity and reducing health disparities are key priorities
- ULI and its members have the potential to contribute positively to the success of the initiative.
Potential local efforts or initiatives might include:
- Infrastructure investments to make biking and walking safer, more convenient, and more equitable
- Equitable park investment programs
- Healthy food access strategies
- Other health and health equity related programs
Statements of Interest from District Council staff will be accepted through January 10, 2018.
