Creating safe, affordable, and equitable housing helps everyone in a community reach their best possible health and wellbeing. The pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of housing in promoting good health. This holds true for people across the country—in communities large and small, rural and urban.
Solutions to housing inequities exist, thanks to the efforts of community members, researchers, policymakers and more. Working together to pursue racially equitable housing policies and lending practices that align with resident needs is a key to shaping healthier communities where everyone can thrive.
