  • What is the Promoting Active Communities Program?
    The Promoting Active Communities (PAC) program is an online assessment and award system. Communities can use the online self-assessment to evaluate their built environments, policies, and programs that support active living. The system also evaluates Complete Streets (CS) policies and implementation and provides a Complete Streets score. Michigan communities that complete the assessment are eligible for an award that recognizes them as an innovative Michigan community making it easier for citizens to lead active lifestyles.

  • Who should complete the PAC assessment?
    Every Michigan city, township, charter township, or village is encouraged to complete a Promoting Active Communities assessment.

  • Why complete the PAC assessment?
    Active living communities support and promote healthy lifestyles, stimulate economic development and attract and retain talent. Active communities are optimal places to live, work, learn and play. Click here to learn more about Active Living Principles.

  • What is involved in the PAC award application process?
    It involves answering questions about your community in the online, interactive Promoting Active Communities assessment. To preview or print the application, visit the Preview the Assessment section.
