Neighborhood Health Workgroup

The Neighborhood Health Workgroup consists of eight nonprofit organizations that are working to advance Take Care New York 2020 in under-resourced neighborhoods across the city. In 2016, the NYC PHIP selected these partners to mobilize their communities around neighborhood-specific health equity goals. Each partner gathered extensive input from diverse community members, researched local assets and opportunities for change, and developed a strategy to improve neighborhood health. The NYC Health Department worked with Hester Street Collaborative to support the partners’ capacity for conducting the process in an inclusive and impactful way.


The NYC PHIP continues to support these partners in 2017-2018 as they organize, pilot, and evaluate their neighborhood health strategies. The NYC Health Department regularly convenes the partners for peer learning activities, and engages experts in various fields to offer training and assistance to the partners on topics such as program development, evaluation, and sustainability planning.
