  • University of Texas at El Paso, in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organization and the Border Environment Cooperation Commission, will conduct an HIA to inform the Village of Vinton, TX, regarding the impacts of proposed water and sanitation improvement projects and of certification and funding decisions on this and similar projects by the Border Environment Cooperation Commission and the North American Development Bank. Vinton is a small, incorporated village on the U.S.-Mexican border that primarily relies on failing septic tanks and cesspools for wastewater removal and domestic wells with poor water quality. Poor water and sanitation are associated with gastrointestinal illnesses and ailments such as hepatitis, dysentery, and associated dehydration. Improved systems are expected not only to improve public health but also to support economic development and long-term sustainability of local businesses and industry.

  • Youth UpRising, a California nonprofit that fosters youth leadership through civic engagement, will conduct an HIA to inform decisions by the Oakland Unified School District to potentially fund a specialized learning academy within Castlemont High School. Located in a community dealing with high crime, violence, poverty, and unemployment, the school currently faces disinvestment, decreased enrollment, and a dropout rate of 40 percent. The proposed academy would prepare at-risk students to transition to post-secondary learning and employment opportunities by providing support beyond the school day, including internship opportunities. The HIA will explore the potential impacts of this academic model and connect educational attainment, employment, and income to related health outcomes, such as chronic disease and mental illness. It will offer recommendations regarding specifications of the appropriations and design for implementation of the academy. Youth will be key partners in the HIA process. This project is supported by
