After several months of collaboration with the Paso del Norte Institute for Healthy Living at UTEP (IHL) and the American Heart Association (AHA), as well as discussion with the El Paso County Commissioners Court, County Commissioner David Stout, and the County Economic Development Department, presented the final Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI) Policy Guidelines for the County of El Paso in early December. The Commissioners Court unanimously approved the initiative on Dec. 11, 2018.
