Here you’ll find links to toolkits, articles, and other practitioner tools and information to build your asset-mapping capacity, in order to strengthen communities.

Asset-mapping is an ABCD practice for creating an inventory of assets for a given community. By approaching a community from places of strength, the community is better able to leverage assets to build and improve its future.

There are three main categories for asset-mapping: Gifts of Individuals, Citizens’ Associations, and Local Institutions. Five key types of assets are mapped with community input: individual assets, associational assets, physical assets, and neighborhood assets.

Asset-mapping is a valuable tool for organizational planning within a community and for developing inter-agency partnerships.
