In 2019 GWHP continued upon early work around the State of CT’s State Innovation Model initiative Health Enhancement Communities (HEC). The Partnership worked with over 20 community partners over the course of two phases and 12 months to complete a feasibility study and report for implementation of this large-scale upstream health intervention- based approach. You can read the full Waterbury HEC report here.
Currently, the State of Connecticut is researching alternative funding sources to allow the 13 HEC projects in the state to continue this work. We will post updates on the project here!
