Healthy Food Access Mapping Tool

PolicyMap

 

Healthy Food Access Portal released a new mapping tool that can help individuals and organizations better understand the communities in which they are working to improve access to healthy food. The tool, called Research Your Community, is powered by PolicyMap and allows users to access 60 data indicators. Topics include:

  • Demographics, including income and SNAP participation;
  • The food environment, including locations of supermarkets and farmers markets;
  • Health indicators, such as fruit and vegetable consumption; and
  • Eligibility data for federal funding programs, such as the New Markets Tax Credit program.
