MANISTIQUE, Mich. (AP) — The city of Manistique is getting $25,000 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as part of an effort to improve community health.

The Upper Peninsula community is one of six nationwide getting the Roadmaps to Health Prize, which honors community partnerships aimed at helping people live healthier lives. The winners were selected from more than 160 applicants.
