Prevention Institute and Equitable Cities will partner with the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity (DNPAO) at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to build the capacity of local government and policymakers to implement equitable transportation and land use policies and investments. A key goal of this project is to interpret how equitable transportation and land use policies are applicable at different levels of governance—from local jurisdictions to the federal level—and provide guidance on how these can be monitored and assessed in the future.
Prevention Institute and Equitable Cities will convene expert practitioners from transportation and land use planning, mobility justice, health equity, and other sectors to inform findings. Their input will be supported by a literature scan summarizing the equity implications of active transportation infrastructure, policy, and program responses considered in the past, and the differentiation of approaches based on community context.
Learnings, frameworks, and best practices taken from this analysis will be disseminated in a nationally-promoted webinar and through other outlets.
