Buenos Vecinos Survey - HUD Component

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   Daniel J. Kruger

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Sustainable Communities Planning Grant provides funding for several projects in Washtenaw County, including Survey Implementation for the BVS project. The BVS will gather comprehensive information from 500 County Latino/as on health status and social determinants of health utilizing Community Based Participatory Research methods. The results will be used both to guide existing efforts to address social equity issues through affordable housing choices, transportation, economic opportunities and healthy food access in the Washtenaw Avenue Corridor. Dr. Kruger will ensure the research integrity of the BVS project, lead the creation of the on-line version of the pilot and implementation surveys in Qualtrics, supervise data analysis, and contribute to project dissemination and future applications for funding that emerge from the project. He will participate in the ReImagine Washtenaw process, to build synergy between the BVS project and other efforts funded by the HUD Sustainable Communities Planning Grant. He will report the results of the BVS pilot survey to the ReImagine Washtenaw coalition and integrate feedback to inform the process and content of the implementation survey. He will also report the results of the BVS implementation survey to the ReImagine Washtenaw coalition, aid with further dissemination efforts, as well as any applications for funding based on the survey results.

Funding Period: 12/15/2012 to 06/30/2014
