Learn more about the 2023 Mayors’ Institute on Advancing Community Revitalization to Improve Health and Equity. The Mayors’ Institute represents a unique yearlong opportunity for Mayors and their teams to take data- and community- informed action on infrastructure, planning, zoning and the built environment that advances health and equity.

The Cities of Opportunity initiative believes that city leaders have the power to bring about transformative change and reduce the health disparities in their cities that are impacting how well and how long their residents live. Acting on these disparities requires recognizing that their root causes lie in social, economic, and racial inequities, and that addressing these will require collaboration and partnership. Unprecedented levels of federal funding and new ways to use data have created an exciting window for action.  

Now is the time for innovative approaches that align resources across issues and partners to deliver long-term solutions for addressing inequities so that all city residents have fair and equitable access to opportunities for good health, well-being, and long lives.
