Healthy Housing Vouchers Pilot

Proposal: A growing body of research shows that when interested families with housing vouchers move to lower poverty areas they experience life improvements, including positive health outcomes. As documented in a recent paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (December 2019), one persistent health challenge that can be ameliorated with a “move to opportunity” is childhood asthma. We propose to create a pilot program that provides housing vouchers to families with children diagnosed with persistent asthma enabling them to move to a safer, and healthier environment.
