Community Leader Group

Real People. Real Solutions. Real Change.

That is what the Healthy Grand County Community Leader Group is all about. Get involved to help solve real community issues! Focus areas the group chose for 2021 are: affordable housing; and mental health, including suicide prevention.

Community Leader Cohort
Grand County Housing Statistics

The Community Leader Group guided state partners on the agenda and action items needed for the Affordable Housing Forum that occurred in March 2021. The Community Leader Group then ran these ads in local papers and on social media in March and April 2021 to educate the community about the issue. These ads generated some good conversations, and helped encourage others to join the Group’s next meeting to make change around affordable housing.
