Map 2 Healthy Living

Map 2 Healthy LivingTM (M2HLTM) is a tool we developed to help Michigan’s SNAP-Ed providers.

Since its launch in 2012, M2HL has empowered SNAP-Ed providers to make data-driven decisions about programming in their communities.

Safe Routes to School

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is an international movement to make it safe, convenient, and fun for children to walk and bike to school, including students with disabilities. Since our pilot launch in 2003, SRTS Michigan has provided grant support to more than 250 schools. With this support, schools are improving infrastructure and delivering programming centered around walking and biking. When routes are safe, walking and biking to school is an easy way for students to meet their daily physical activity needs.
