Collaborative Cottage Grove is a BUILD 2.0 Awardee: 

“Collaborative Cottage Grove’s Community-Centered Health program is committed to the transformation of health, equitable community development, and inclusion of cultural diversity. The partners are leaders in changing housing systems to align health and housing. They are not only mapping asthma hospital visits and housing condition data to identify communities in need of support, but they are also developing an electronic referral system to link families with asthma education and housing assessments, and developing funding for remediation and rehabilitation. Cottage Grove aims to foster healthy, resident-led communities by integrating community empowerment with environmental changes and high-quality, onsite, primary and behavioral health care. These efforts will ultimately create a positive and measurable impact on hospital emergency visits and health disparities in the community.”
