State & Local Groups--Sign on to letter to Congress to restore funding for built environment and health program

The CDC is asking national, state and local groups to sign on to its letter to Congress asking for $3 million for that program in 2017. Bike Walk Connecticut has signed on. The deadline for signing on is Friday, February 19.
