Working together for healthy communities

The Minnesota Department of Health provides funding to Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health through the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) to work with a variety of partners to improve the health of our community. Saint Paul - Ramsey County Public Health is in its fourth cycle of SHIP funding.

SHIP funding is focused on three goals:

  • Increasing physical activity,
  • Improving access to healthy foods,
