Addressing Housing and Health: How Cities Are Making a Difference


Please join the Urban Institute and the National League of Cities as they explore the role of mayors and city leaders, in partnership with key social sector stakeholders, in achieving better health outcomes through safe, affordable housing initiatives. They will discuss emerging city-level models, based on a recent convening of mayors and city teams, and share new research from the Urban Institute on unique health and housing interventions at the neighborhood and city level.

The following areas will be discussed in detail:

  • Leadership role of mayors and city agencies in addressing housing and health, especially targeting improved outcomes for children and families
  • Essential role of data, partnerships, and financing models in advancing healthy housing approaches
  • Gaps in research and practice that need to be addressed to move the needle on the health, social, and economic consequences of poor housing
  • Impact of changes at the federal level on city-led efforts to improve housing and health outcomes
