“Invest Health” is a new private funding program to help communities promote better health among loert-income people. Grants are going to 50 medium-size cities across the country; and three of those are in Northeast Ohio.
Akron, Canton and Youngstown will get $60,000 each. That doesn’t sound like a lot as grants go. But for this purpose, it’s a big step. The money is to cover the costs of seeking ‘best practices’ for improving health in impoverished areas.
