In 2022, IMPACT DC collaborated with the Child Health Advocacy Institute at Children’s National, Children’s Law Center, and Yachad (a D.C.-based home remediation organization) to develop an interactive Healthy Housing Map. This map identifies multi-family buildings in Washington, D.C., that display both high rates of asthma-related pediatric emergency department visits and unhealthy housing conditions that contribute to asthma severity.
This “precision public health tool” enables us to identify where substandard housing is impacting the health and welfare of children living with asthma. The map uses data from Children’s National, Children’s Law Center, the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs and other public agencies.
For more information about the mapping tool, please view the User Guide and Map Methodology and Technical Documentation.
