The case study outlines how Solano Public Health used funding to create a Race Equity Team, which conducted trainings internally and built relationships with external partners to address policy changes focused on racial equity. The Solano Public Health Division used this grant funding to work with community partners and other government agencies to undertake projects focused in low-resourced neighborhoods, such as conducting healthy store makeovers, adopting and implementing policies to increase access to water in parks and schools, improving clinical prevention referrals, and introducing policies that address access and exposure to tobacco. Of note, much of this work has focused on racial equity in the realm of chronic disease prevention in low-resourced neighborhoods.
