Impact & Materials

Findings from the study may inform policy proposals related to HUD housing assistance. Housing assistance is a scarce benefit, and findings from this study may help make a clear case for expanding such assistance and inform how existing (limited) resources can be used in the most efficient and effective manner to promote population health. By providing evidence about how an important category of social spending impacts population health, findings may also support the value of integration of social services and health care system to improve population health.
