Toolkit for a Healthy Delaware



This online healthy-communities toolkit was created with Delaware local governments in mind. The toolkit is based on IPA's Healthy Communities: A Resource Guide for Delaware Municipalities, originally published both in hard copy and as an online document, and is intended to help local government officials foster a culture of wellness within their communities.

The toolkit provides Delaware municipalities with easy access to information on improving the built environment, enhancing community design, and developing public policies and plans to support active-living initiatives. Links to three assessment tools -- Comprehensive Plan, Walkability, and Health Impact Assessment-- are provided.  Other sections include Access to Healthy Foods, Complete Streets, and Smoke-Free Policies.
