City of Manchester, New Hampshire Receives RWJF Culture of Health Prize For Efforts that Give All Residents the Chance to Thrive
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Recognizes the City of Manchester, NH for Weaving a Culture of Health throughout the Community’s Fabric
Manchester, NH (September 14, 2016) Manchester is one of seven winners of the 2016 RWJF Culture of Health Prize awarded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s largest philanthropy devoted solely to health. The Prize honors communities for their efforts to ensure all residents have the opportunity to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives.
Manchester is being nationally recognized for bringing partners together to rally around a shared vision of health, drawing especially on the wisdom, voice, and experience of residents themselves. Chosen from nearly 200 applicant communities across the country, Manchester’s award winning efforts include its response to the emerging opioid and heroin epidemic—which has successfully mobilized first responders, community organizations, and health care providers to connect residents with critical treatment services. When over half of the City’s school children became enrolled in free and reduced meals, city leaders in partnership with residents worked to transform schools in the city’s most socioeconomically disadvantaged areas into neighborhood health and education hubs. Former textile mills have been converted into high-tech spaces and outdoor recreation areas, spurring economic growth and providing more opportunities for physical activity. Funders are collaboratively investing in new ways to bring projects to scale.
