(This amendment provides $500,000 each year from the general fund for Healthier757, which is a multi-stakeholder, integrated, community-based program that bridges the work site, home, and community, connecting citizens in the 757 area code through an interactive digital health platform that provides a vehicle for increasing awareness, communication, engagement, and behavior change. The language directs the grant funding to focus on Medicaid or lower-income members of the community.)
