Texas Healthy Communities empowers Texans to improve their health in all the places they live, work and play. The program assists communities to assess their environments and public health policies and empowers communities to take action and make positive changes within their communities through local policy development and systems change, building on the talent, resources, and expertise of community members, and establishing a team of local advocates to drive local decision-making to improve health.
