Anchor Institutions 2.0 – Engaging Hospitals in Community Investment and Affordable Housing

Nov 29, 2018

Session Description

Hospitals have historically been highly engaged in charity and community investment work. But a new form of that work is beginning to take hold to fill in the funding gap in cities around the country, specifically around affordable housing. Deep research and data have closely tied health outcomes with the quality and affordability of housing making this a highly correlated and important predictor of healthy communities. Kaiser Permanente recently announced a $200M investment fund for affordable housing. A dozen regions around the US are developing affordable housing plans in partnership with major hospital institutions in their region. Hear from the innovators behind this shifting ecosystem on how they are designing, planning, bridging sectors, creatively financing and accelerating this work.
