HealthScore is a screening tool that offers a holistic and actionable vision for healthy, inclusive, and sustainable housing and mixed-use development. CLF uses HealthScore to understand neighborhood context and screen potential investments for its Healthy Neighborhoods Equity Fund.
Our scorecard is a model for how to measure and track the ways that real estate development can improve community health and sustainability by:
- reversing historic patterns of segregationand disinvestment;
- increasing housing stability andeconomic opportunity;
- reducing climate-damaging emissions; and
- protecting people and property from climate risks.
Measuring the potential impacts of a development with a comprehensive screening tool helps educate real estate developers about how their work impacts health and environmental conditions, provides greater transparency in the development process and holds developers accountable to investors, residents, and the larger community.
