Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties is a key part of the Let’s Move! initiative and helps local elected officials develop long-term, sustainable and holistic strategies to promote improved nutrition and physical activity in their communities.
Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties (LMCTC) is part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s comprehensive Let’s Move! initiative, which is dedicated to reversing the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation. With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, NLC is providing technical assistance to local elected officials working to create healthier communities and prevent childhood obesity, including those participating in LMCTC.
NLC is working in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and with the support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the National Association of Counties and other nonprofit organizations to assist local elected officials who join LMCTC as they implement policy and environmental changes to prevent childhood obesity.

LMCTC unifies the efforts of cities, towns and counties across the county in pursuing five measurable and achievable goals. Participating communities are awarded bronze, silver and gold medals for achieving specific benchmarks pertaining to each goal. Local elected officials from these communities are able to showcase their accomplishments.
