Healthy People, Healthy Places is about communities coming together to promote health and equity through built environment and food access policy. Be part of the discussion and planning taking place to create livable spaces and access to healthy foods in your community.
Con Alma Health Foundation is one of only 13 local foundations in the United States to be recognized with a 2012 national Convergence Partnership Innovation Fund grant. The awards honor new or expanded local and regional innovative initiatives that help ensure all people can live, work, and play in healthy communities. The Convergence Partnership is a collaboration of eight funders who have come together with the shared goal of changing policies and environments to better achieve the vision of healthy people living in healthy places.
Con Alma’s goals for this effort are to promote equity and health by increasing equitable built environments and access to healthy food with a focus on low-income communities, rural communities, and communities of color; to support the preservation and enhancement of cultural and spiritual assets in the community; and to develop capacity by creating a long-term commitment to equity-focused policy and environmental efforts.
Con Alma Health Foundation provides leadership for the project in partnership with Farm to Table, and other partners representing a multi-field and multi-sector approach. A New Mexico funders’ collaborative, committed to promoting health and equity, provides funding support for the project’s matching grant requirement. Farm to Table is working with Con Alma to implement project goals; participate in planning; identifying other project program partners; and to coordinate an advisory council, technical assistance, and local and state civic engagement training and policy.
