NASHP’s Housing and Health Resources for States

Safe and stable housing is necessary for people to become and stay healthy. States and the federal government have both invested in programs that help low-income and vulnerable populations find housing and access health care and supportive services. However, those programs often remain siloed with health and housing sectors often working independently toward similar goals. These resources highlight how policymakers are breaking down siloes to better deploy their states’ resources through an aligned health and housing agenda.
