The community capital framework provides a lens through which to consider the unique characteristics of each community. This series provides accessible definitions for different types of capital, and introduces the Community Diagnostics and Social Impact (CD+SI) Toolkit, which is a UGA-developed instrument to quantitatively measure perceptions of different types of capital in a community. Within the framework, political capital is a community's capacity to influence the allocation and availability of resources; natural capital is a community's existing environmental resources; social capital is a community's relationships and networks; human capital is a community's human resources; cultural capital is a community's heritage and self-perceptions; and built-financial capital identifies the financial and physical resources that can be utilized to benefit residents and facilitate growth.
