California Healthy Places Index: Extreme Heat Edition

The California Healthy Places Index (HPI): Extreme Heat Edition is a tool developed by the Public Health Alliance in partnership with the UCLA Luskin Center for Innovation. The tool provides datasets on projected heat exposure for California, place-based indicators measuring community conditions and sensitive populations. It also provides a list of resources and funding opportunities that can be used to address extreme heat.

The tool can be used to:

  • Understand underlying heat vulnerability and resilience characteristics of a community
  • Identify resources to mitigate adverse effects of extreme heat
  • Prioritize public and private investments, resources and programs
