A joint use agreement is a formal agreement between two separate entities – often a school and a city or county – setting forth the terms and conditions for shared use of public property or facilities. Migrant Health Promotion and the Alice Independent School District will continue to bring together elected officials, policy makers, staff from community organizations, and advocates to learn more about implementing joint use agreements throughout Jim Wells County.
“It is important to capitalize on health endeavors of this nature when looking at avenues for systemic change and economic growth in rural counties like Jim Wells. Promoting health in rural communities is crucial to the longevity of its society and MHP is committed to continuing to pursue these ventures in Jim Wells and surrounding counties,” added C. LeRoy Cavazos, Senior Managing Director of Policy and Contracts for Migrant Health Promotion.
Through this Joint Use Agreement, Migrant Health Promotion and the Alice Independent School District hope to demonstrate that creating spaces for physical activity results in improved community-wide health.
