Department Description

Healthy Community Initiatives (HCI) works with Revere residents, businesses and stakeholders in leading healthier lives, raising healthier families and building healthier communities to make healthy eating and active living the easy choice through policy, systems, and environmental changes.


A Community-Led Collaboration

Revere on the Move (ROTM) is a collaboration between the City of Revere's Healthy Community Initiatives Department and the MGH Revere CARES Coalition.

Revere experiences a consistently higher percentage of obesity compared with the state average, particularly for children and youth. Furthermore, according to surveys about the community's health needs, some populations report 1 in 4 people having run out of food or worried about running out of food in the past year. Revere on the Move works to make healthy choices around food and physical activity readily available and accessible to all Revere residents through changes to policy, systems, environments, and programs.

Revere on the Move is a Mass in Motion legacy community funded by Partners HealthCare.

Our policy, systems, and environmental change strategies include:

  • Active Living - Bicycle sharing, bicycle lanes and trails, urban trails, and Complete Streets Policy development
  • Food Justice - Revere Farmers Market, community gardens, food economy research and development
  • Neighborhood Organizing - leadership building of residents to join or create neighborhood groups to take on healthy eating and active living projects
