Department of Public Health - RENEW LAC! Request for Proposals 2009

RENEW Request for Proposals Overview

On March 19, 2010 the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health selected ten agencies to receive the "RENEW LAC!" or Renewing Environments for Nutrition, Exercise and Wellness in Los Angeles County grant. These agencies will receive approximately $240,000 to develop and implement initiatives that will increase physical activity and access to healthy foods through policy, systems, and environmental change. The ten initiatives are funded by the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Communities Putting Prevention to Work initiative. A list of the selected agencies and the Request for Proposals are provided below.

1) List of Selected RENEW Applicants  (Contracts are currently under negotiation)

More information about the RENEW initiatives will be released as details are finalized.

Director's Message
Welcome to the Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention website.

Our primary mission is to help make Los Angeles County a healthier place. In collaboration with our community partners and key stakeholders, we focus on reducing the risk and burden of chronic disease, injury, and social conditions that affect health to promote well-being and quality of life for all residents in this diverse county. Good health provides the foundation for a strong quality of life for our children, families, and friends. When we focus on prevention and make our communities places of health, safety, and opportunity for social and economic growth, everyone benefits.

I encourage you to explore the resources we have listed on these pages and appreciate your interest in our work.
