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.
Using our Vulnerable Populations Footprint tool as a backdrop, you can now visualize the areas of your community that are experiencing low education and high poverty, and then select very specific areas of your community as your Target Intervention Area. 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.
