"Public health is purchasable. Within natural limitations, a community can determine its own death rate."
- Hermann M. Biggs, NYC Department of Health, 1914
In an effort to advance its work in New York City, the Partnership for a Healthier New York City is seeking community-based organizations in Queens that have interests in healthy eating and active living to work with experienced coalitions on new projects. As part of the City’s efforts, funded by a Community Transformation Grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Partnership is seeking to fund work in Queens to further the progress in creating a healthier city. The Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY), on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) and the Partnership for a Healthier New York City, is excited to announce this opportunity.
