For the San Francisco Healthy Homes project, we are collaborating with community stakeholders to develop community action plans, using a process called Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP). MAPP is a step-by-step community participatory approach to public health improvement.
Our partnerships and MAPP activities will build upon existing relationships between community-based organizations, coalitions, advocates, and city agencies, and encourage the participation of local residents. The MAPP process requires the sharing of many different viewpoints and the participation of community members willing to play an active part in creating this plan.
San Francisco is habitat for 800,000 people – meeting needs for space to work, play, and learn; for food, water, and air; for community with local flora and fauna. SF Environment provides support for urban agriculture and forestry and green buildings, helping residents and businesses harness environmental opportunities.
