The Campaign recognizes cities and towns that adopt healthy eating and active living policies. The purpose of the HEAL Recognition Program is to recognize and motivate local governments’ continued achievement from passing a HEAL resolution to attaining its HEAL goals. Cities and towns pass a HEAL resolution to become a member of the HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign. They advance to higher levels of recognition – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum — by meeting the criteria listed in the chart below. Cities and Towns are recognized as new members of the Campaign and for advancing to higher recognition levels at the Maryland Municipal League Conference (Summer) and the Virginia Municipal League Conferences (Fall).
The HEAL Campaign will contact cities and towns prior to the annual conferences with information on how to apply for recognition.
