Chicago, Illinois
Illinois Public Health Institute; Chicago Department of Public Health

The Illinois Public Health Institute, in collaboration with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), will conduct an HIA to inform plans for the implementation of a proposed greenway trail, urban agricultural zone, and other land-use elements along a two-mile corridor in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood. The HIA will consider how the design and implementation of these neighborhood proposals will affect community safety, social cohesion, physical activity, food access, and economic development, which in turn are related to stress, obesity, and chronic diseases such as diabetes. Additionally, the grantee will support the CDPH in building departmental and city capacity for conducting the HIAs. The CDPH will also explore opportunities to integrate the HIAs into its staff positions and internal structure. (Support for this project was provided, in part, by a grant from the de Beaumont Foundation)
