Getting To A Healthy State: LHCC Mini-Grants Making Things Happen

Money talks. And guess what? The effects of our LHCC mini-grants are starting to be seen, heard and felt! You’ve seen how LHCC resources have helped in Southwest Louisiana. (And if you haven’t, read more on our website, some of our previous blogs and our social media posts about the Complete Streets effort in Lake Charles.) Now watch over the coming weeks to learn more about what our mini-grants are doing!

The Nation Is Studying How Well We Move!

It’s not often that Louisiana gets recognized for doing anything healthy (which is a prime reason why LHCC exists), but thanks to Complete Streets in Southwest Louisiana, we are! Hopefully, you read about the Complete Streets effort earlier in this blog. (And if you haven’t, please go back and do it.) Thanks to the highly successful efforts of a whole group of partners, including LHCC, which contributed people, time and money in the effort, Southwest Louisiana passed a Complete Streets ordinance in an unanimous vote.
