The New Jersey Conservation Foundation is leading this two-year project to advance community health by increasing the effective use of data tools and resources to guide action. Partnering with the 40-member Camden Collaborative Initiative (CCI), the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, the Parkside Business and Community Partnership, the Trust for Public Land and the greater Camden community, the New Jersey Conservation Foundation is developing a customized module to make the NJ Conservation Blueprint, an online GIS mapping tool, a meaningful planning resource for Camden stakeholders. This Camden-specific module will inform land use decisions promoting health by helping community and city leaders provide more than 70 layers of information such as park location, available transit options and population and health statistics in a visual and publicly accessible format. Through this project, the New Jersey Conservation Foundation and its partners are creating a tool for policy and systems changes that can build a healthier Camden.
