Excerpted from the full Enterprise Green Communities criteria, 1.2b focuses on the creation of a Health Action Plan.

One of Enterprise’s most successful and widely-used tools – the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria – is an industry standard for green and healthy building. As of 2015, the Criteria includes a framework designed to address key health issues facing the community. This process, the Health Action Plan framework, identifies five Resident Health Campaigns that encompass many of the health issues that disproportionately affect low-income communities: injury and accessibility; asthma and respiratory health; cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and obesity; cancer and health outcomes related to toxin exposure; and mental health. Based on a review of local public health data and input from residents and other community stakeholders, community development organizations and public health partners develop a Health Action Plan that may focus on one or more of the Resident Health Campaigns or may identify additional concerns that are especially relevant to the community.
