We are pleased to announce that the Live Well Kingston coalition, in partnership with the the APA NY Metro Chapter, has received a $125,000 grant from the American Planning Association through its Plan4Health program to combat two determinants of chronic disease-lack of physical activity and lack of access to nutritious foods.

"As a founding Live Well Kingston sponsor, and an organization dedicated to helping keep our community healthy, HealthAlliance is pleased to have partnered with all the organizations that submitted and received this important grant," said HealthAlliance Chief Strategy Officer Josh Ratner. "Part of the grant money will support HealthAlliance's Community Heart Health Coalition initiatives. The coalition is integrally involved with creating and implementing community programs and structuring environmental and policy changes that help build a healthier community."
