Community Health Promotion Program
The Delaware Recognition for Community Health Promotion Program will be accepting applications in March 2014. The program highlights the efforts of Delaware's municipalities that incorporate health-promoting options as an integral part of their services and infrastructure. Community leaders, coalitions, municipal staff, and others are eligible to complete the application (with review and signature of a municipal official). Start thinking about participating this year. Being part of this program is a great way to promote health, economic development, and other vitality goals in your community. See More Information.
