The Community Commons site exists to support the advancement of healthy, sustainable and equitable communities. By leveraging the reports, maps and tools available on the site, you can strengthen your planning and grant applications to help improve community outcomes.
In addition to clearly defining your target community, the mapping tools also allow you to identify the populations in your area who are most vulnerable. Additional emphasis in these areas can advance health equity and improve health outcomes overall.
Take the following steps to define and describe your target community:
- Step 1: Select your target geography for intervention and publish a demographic report of those to be served using the Target Intervention Area Tool.
- Step 2: Explore conditions impacting health in your selected communities by using the data map layers provided.
