National Civic League’s 2019 All-America City Awards: Creating Healthy Communities through Inclusive Civic Engagement

September 14, 2018

Since 1949, the National Civic League has designated 10 communities each year as All-America Cities for their outstanding civic accomplishments.

The National Civic League is now accepting applications for the 2019 All-America City Award, focused on celebrating examples of civic engagement practices that advance health equity in local communities. We are looking for communities that demonstrate inclusive decision-making processes to create better health for all, and particularly for populations currently experiencing poorer health outcomes.

Begin your community’s application today to become a 2019 All-America City!

Cities, counties, towns and tribes wishing to apply have until March 5, 2019, to submit their application.
