The FCA seeks to advance civic health in Florida’s communities. Civic health relates to the overall wellbeing of residents, neighborhoods, and communities, using their voice to find solutions to key issues where they live and work. Communities with strong indicators of civic health have higher employment rates, stronger schools, libraries and parks, better physical health, more responsive governments, and their residents live longer healthier lives.
Better communities are civically healthy, prosperous, inclusive and supportive. Let's work together to realize this vision of advancing civic health for the whole community.
