(Awarded November 2018)
Housing can be a powerful platform for health. But, for this to be true, both affordability and opportunity must be present. In August 2018, we released a request for proposals entitled “Health Starts at Home,” under our Housing Wrap-Around Services focus area, intended to increase opportunity available to residents of affordable housing communities. Projects funded through this RFP are expected create the conditions that foster self-sufficiency and/or stabilized health for low-income individuals and families. Over the next two years, we look forward to working with service and housing providers to better understand how to create those conditions.
