Although affordable housing holds great potential for improving the health of its residents, the optimal way to incorporate health into the affordable housing planning and design process remains unknown. Working with five community development corporations (CDCs), we performed a pilot study of their approach to developing Health Action Plans, a structured process that formalizes collaboration between CDCs and public health professionals.

Work requirements in public housing are highly controversial, and little is known about their impacts. We examined how implementation of a work requirement paired with supportive services by Charlotte Housing Authority has impacted residents’ overall well-being. Although the policy might improve well-being by increasing household income, it might also engender stress through greater housing precarity.

The Support and Services at Home (SASH) program in Vermont aims to coordinate care and assist participants in accessing the health care and support services they need to maintain their health and age comfortably and safely in their homes. Most program participants are residents of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-assisted properties or Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties. Our objective is to estimate the impact of the first 5 1/2 years of the SASH program on the Medicare expenditures of these participants.

Policy Brief Jul 27, 2018
The effective coordination of a patient’s health care services is a key component of high quality and efficient care. In this brief we first describe the goals of care coordination and the central role for primary care, followed by the specific activities involved in care coordination. Next we summarize the evidence on the effectiveness of different care coordination activities that PCMHs and ACOs can pursue. Finally, we suggest roles for PCMHs and ACOs in coordinating care and summarize key points.

For fiscal year 2013, the Department requests $2.07 billion for the Public Housing Capital Fund to address development, rehabilitation, modernization and preservation needs of the Public Housing portfolio. While funding the Capital Fund at the requested level of $195 million over the fiscal year 2012 appropriation will not enable PHAs to meet all existing capital and accrual needs for fiscal year 2013, funding at this level will provide PHAs with some ability to prevent their housing stock from falling into a state of obsolescence, disrepair, and/or removal from inventory.
