Take Care New York 2020

Take Care New York 2020

Take Care New York (TCNY) 2020 (PDF) is the City's blueprint for giving everyone the chance to live a healthier life. Its aim is to improve every community's health, especially among those groups with the worst health outcomes.

TCNY 2020 looks at traditional health factors, as well as social factors, such as how many people in a community graduated from high school or go to jail. We developed a list of these top priorities for each community based on consultations with more than 1,000 New Yorkers throughout the city.

The Health Department is now working with partners in a variety of sectors to advance these community priorities. One such effort, the TCNY 2020 Neighborhood Health Initiative, is a collaboration with eight nonprofit groups in under-resourced neighborhoods to bring community members together and identify avenues toward better community health.

TCNY 2020's 3rd Annual Update Report 2018 (PDF) describes:

  • Our progress toward the 2020 goals.
  • How housing issues are important for health.
  • Four case studies of organizations that are working to improve health in their communities.
