State Actions to Increase Access to Supportive Housing

To improve the health of individuals experiencing homelessness and reduce associated health care costs, many states are leveraging COVID-19 relief and other funds to provide permanent supportive housing.

Featuring national and state perspectives, this webinar will explore the landscape of permanent supportive housing and highlight several state legislative actions.

Examining Policies’ Effects on Public Health

Decisions made in sectors outside of public health and health care—education, housing and employment, for example—can directly affect the factors that shape people’s health. Some jurisdictions use tools such as a “health notes,” health impact reviews and demographic notes to examine the potential health and equity implications of proposed legislation and policies in a range of sectors. This webinar will discuss how health notes were developed and the content they include. Respondents will also have a chance to highlight how they have used health analyses in their legislatures.
