Saratoga County Public Health Services is proud to announce our selection as a 2019 Rural Impact County Challenge (RICC) Action Learning Cohort!

Thanks to the National Association of Counties (NACo) and County Health Rankings & Roadmaps (CHR&R), Saratoga County will get the chance to expand both our efforts and education surrounding housing, health, and equity. The initiative will run from Sep. 2019-Aug. 2020, with a chance to discuss these topics alongside other participating counties at a NACo Lake Placid Summit!

The RICC’s focus on housing, health, and equity will shine a light on the organizations of Saratoga County already working to address these issues including the Continuum of Care Committee (COC). We look forward to learning from the RICC over the next year!
