ISAIAH Grantee Receives Banner Media Coverage for Initial Results of HIA

ISAIAH, a Health Impact Project Grantee, held a 300-person meeting March 5, 2011 to share initial results from their HIA analysis. A full report is anticipated in June. ISAIAH, TakeAction Minnesota and PolicyLink, are working together in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to conduct an HIA of proposed land-use changes related to a new light rail transit line that will connect the Twin Cities. The Central Corridor Light Rail Transit line, which runs through low-income and immigrant communities in St. Paul, could have wide-reaching, positive impacts on health if it leads to a reduction in air pollution and increased access to grocery stores, parks and open space without displacing local residents and businesses.
