Policy Options Locate stimulus investments in underserved areas and employ disadvantaged populations. Require infrastructure investments (stimulus and transportation bill) to integrate health impact assessments as well as measures (e.g., sidewalks, pedestrian overpasses, bike/walk trails) to promote safe physical activity. Create neighborhoods of opportunity by mandating that capital investments (e.g., schools, infrastructure, transportation, commercial development) involving federal subsidies or programs be located in areas with inclusionary zoning policies. Require localities to distribute/implement public investment projects equitably. Dismantle policies that result in disparate racial/ethnic outcomes (e.g. school financing, employment-based insurance, etc.) Enforce Civil Rights laws (e.g. mortgage lending, housing, steering, financial services etc.).
