My research agenda examines the link between social capital and the use of local collaborative partnerships for addressing neighborhood environmental and public health concerns. I consider the role and effect of collaborations on local community partnerships. To date, my findings conclude that a collaborative approach helps a community partnership build a foundation of social capital that can be drawn upon for future work even after the funding expires and the project is complete. Moreover, it illustrates how social capital can continue to grow and demonstrates the effect that collaborative partnerships can have on collective responsibility, economic stability, and consensus building.
