In 2010, the Cardiovascular Health, Physical Activity and Nutrition Section at the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) in partnership with Healthy Kids, Healthy Michigan Coalition received a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to support the passage of a state level complete streets resolution and future legislation.  The funding is also intended to support efforts by local health departments to pass complete streets ordinances in their communities.

Michigan Department of Community Health is also contributing additional funding to the effort.  Seven health departments were awarded grants of $12,000 a piece to support local complete streets efforts.

“Passage of complete streets ordinances will help insure that our communities accommodate all forms of transportation and not just automobiles,” said Lisa Grost, Public Health Consultant for MDCH. “Increasing safety for pedestrians and bicyclists and improving physical activity levels through active infrastructure is a win-win for Michigan communities.”

For the 2010 grant year, the following local health departments and communities have been awarded the ARRA-Complete Streets grant:

Local Health Department Community
Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Promotion City of Detroit
Washtenaw County Health Department City of Saline
Ingham County Health Department City of East Lansing
Western U.P County Health Department City of Houghton
Marquette County Health Department Marquette Township
Genesee County Health Department City of Flint and City of Linden
Jackson County Health Department City of Jackson
