The National Civic League welcomes the finalist communities and their delegations  to the 2014 All-America City Awards!

Since 1949, the award has been given each year to at least ten communities for outstanding civic accomplishments. It recognizes communities for successfully addressing pressing challenges such as housing, government innovation, job development, educational improvement and neighborhood and commercial revitalization.

This year applicants have been asked to list one or more projects or initiatives aimed at addressing the underlying conditions that affect the health of communities. As part of NCL's celebration of the 25th anniversary of the U.S. Healthy Communities movement, the 2014 awards program will spotlight efforts to address issues such as obesity, walkable cities, biking, fitness, healthy eating and disease prevention.
