Healthy Neighborhoods Equity Fund Releases Health Impact Assessment

This Health Impact Assessment (HIA), conducted by the Metropolitan Area Planning Association (MAPC) in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, examines the potential health impacts that could result from investments made by the Healthy Neighborhoods Equity Fund (HNEF). The analysis was conducted by using three Transit Oriented Development (TOD) projects in the City of Boston (Bartlett Place, Madison Tropical Parcel 10, and Parcel 25), and their cumulative impacts as case studies, since they are potentially aligned with the type of projects that the HNEF would support. The results of the HIA are intended to help define the health-related metrics of the HNEF, as well as to inform interested developers and potential investors about the anticipated social and economic changes that could result from HNEF (and by association any TOD) supported projects.
