A new toolkit for public health, called Preserving, Protecting, and Expanding Affordable Housing is available from ChangeLab Solutions.
Stable, quality, affordable housing is central to the health of individuals, families, and communities. Without policies that ensure housing remains affordable to people of all incomes, longtime residents, particularly renters, are more at risk of displacement. Low-income households also have fewer opportunities to move to these urban neighborhoods or access their new investments.
Practitioners and community advocates working at the intersection of housing and health have a unique role to play in preserving, protecting, and expanding the number of affordable rental housing options in high-demand neighborhoods. ChangeLab Solutions has developed this comprehensive guide to help them.
