PROJECTS and WAYS TO GET INVOLVED!
Land Use Toolkit Project – This project was funded by the Con Alma Health Foundation and is currently funded through the Healthy Here initiative. The project team is working on a toolkit to explain the land-use permitting steps to community members so they can actively and efficiently participate in land-use decisions that affect them. This toolkit will help low-income communities and communities of color in rural and urban areas navigate the environmental regulatory processes of New Mexico. The toolkit will be pilot tested and then distributed to neighborhood associations and other community groups in Bernalillo County, NM and Doña Ana County, NM.
