This map shows how the Bay Area regional agencies each identify disadvantaged and vulnerable communities, and how each of these approaches overlap in identifying the communities around the region. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission, Bay Conservation and Development Commission, and Bay Area Air Quality Management District, have each developed a methodology that look at select population characteristics, and health and location-based indicators to help quantify disproportionate vulnerability to the impacts of air quality or flooding. BARC is facilitating an evaluation and coordinated effort among the regional agencies to better understand how we can work together to inform and optimize policy, programming and funding to more effectively support our Bay Area communities that need it most.
