Health Improvement Zones

SCPH is committed to reducing health disparities and improving health which requires focusing on the root causes and determinants of poor health in our community such as poverty, education, employment, housing, access to healthcare, clean air and water, and access to healthy foods.

SCPH administers a grant program funded by the Ohio Department of Health titled: Ohio Health Improvement Zones Pilot Project (OI23). The ultimate goal is to improve health and social outcomes for people experiencing health disparities and inequities and increase community resilience to respond to, withstand, and recover from adverse situations.
