The Action Acceleration and Collaborative Learning initiative supports the advancement of a Culture of Health through targeted activities and leveraged resources that help communities make effective and lasting change. The Action Acceleration and Collaborative Learning components build from previous or current Roadmaps to Health Action Center coaching. The Action Acceleration funding pathway supports the advancement of local action within a community, and the Collaborative Learning funding pathway supports mutually beneficial learning exchanges across communities that lead to local action or impact.
The 2014-2016 Roadmaps to Health Action Awards is a related initiative that was designed to accelerate or advance efforts to improve health by strengthening the capacity of members and leaders in 20 communities to make effective and lasting change.
The Action Acceleration and Collaborative Learning and the Roadmaps Action Awards initiatives are part of the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program, a collaboration between Healthy Places by Design, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. Healthy Places by Design is managing the Action Acceleration and Collaborative Learning funding process and has supported ongoing collaborative learning and exchange among communities.
