HEAL Designations

The HEAL Cities Campaign focuses on three, policy-related areas: employee wellness, access to healthy foods and land use. The Campaign recognizes cities that adopt healthy eating and active living policies with three designations, EAGER, ACTIVE or FIT. Cities become EAGER Cities when they join the HEAL Cities Campaign with an area of policy focus. To be designated ACTIVE or FIT, cities must submit their qualifying policies along with the resolution or policy they are submitting to join the Campaign.

EAGER CITIES

Join the Campaign by deciding to focus on a HEAL Cities Campaign area or a policy related to a Campaign area.

ACTIVE CITIES

Have already adopted and implemented two policies in at least one Campaign area. ACTIVE CITIES join the Campaign by adopting a HEAL Cities Campaign Resolution that includes at least two commitments for further policy development, OR by adopting an additional policy in one of the Campaign areas they have not yet addressed.

FIT CITIES

Have already adopted and implemented at least one policy in each of the three campaign areas. FIT CITIES join the Campaign by adopting a HEAL Cities Campaign Resolution that includes at least two commitments for further policy development, OR by adopting an additional policy in one of the Campaign areas.
