Invest Health

Leveraging investments to improve neighborhoods facing the biggest barriers to better health.

Creating Strategies for Healthier Cities

The Invest Health program—a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Reinvestment Fund—aims to transform how city leaders work together to help low-income communities thrive, with specific attention to community features that drive health such as access to safe and affordable housing, places to play and exercise, and quality jobs.

Mid-sized American cities face some of the nation’s deepest challenges with entrenched poverty, poor health, and a lack of investment. They also offer fertile ground for strategies that improve health and have the potential to boost local economies. Invest Health cities will fundamentally change the way communities improve opportunities to live healthy lives by addressing the drivers of health including jobs, housing, education, community safety, and environmental conditions.
