Putting Business to Work for Health: Incentive Policies for the Private Sector

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

Developed by ChangeLab Solutions, formerly Public Health Law & Policy (PHLP), the “Putting Business to Work for Health” guide looks 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.
