Putting Business to Work for Health

Incentive policies for the private sector

Good Governance

Local government incentives can motivate business owners to make choices that promote public health.

Every day, business owners and real estate developers make decisions that have tremendous impact on our health – where homes are built, where businesses are located, and what kinds of products and services are available.

ChangeLab Solutions developed this guide to look at how local government incentives can help improve community health. It explains a variety of different types of incentives that promote access to healthy food and physical activity space, and outlines the steps involved in developing and carrying out these policies and programs.
