Housing and Health: New Opportunities for Dialogue and Action


The National Center for Healthy Housing developed this brief on "Housing and Health: New Opportunities for Dialogue and Action." This brief details how housing impacts health and how housing departments can impact health through their policy decisions. This is useful for local health departments interested in developing relationships with their local housing authorities for cross-sector collaboration. It provides information that local health departments can share with local housing authorities and describes how the two agencies can work hand in hand to advance health.
