Gold Eagle Award
The Los Angeles County Healthy Design Workgroup (HDW) was honored in 2015 by the Los Angeles County
Quality and Productivity Commission for the work of the HDW Grants Committee. This committee works to increase
funding for healthy design plans and projects; maximize the effectiveness of grant development and implementation across departments; and improve health
and mobility in high need unincorporated areas. Since 2013, the committee has submitted 23 grants requesting
$37 million dollars. Of these, 14 grants have been awarded for $16.4 million, and approximately $9 million
remain outstanding. For this accomplishment, in October 2015, the HDW Grants Committee was awarded the Gold
Eagle Award by the Los Angeles County Quality and Productivity Commission at its 29th Annual Productivity
and Quality Awards Program.
Go Human Campaign
The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) launched the Go Human campaign this fall. Go
Human is a campaign to encourage Southern Californians to use human-powered transportation and change how we
think about others on the road. The campaign consists of an advertising campaign to promote traffic safety, the
development of resources and toolkits for cities and organizations and the support of events across the
region that encourage walking and biking. DPH is an active partner on this campaign. Learn more at Go Human.
