Utilizing Medicaid and Health Resources for Housing Subsidies and Development

Friday, June 23, 2017: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Lafayette Park (Grand Hyatt Washington)
The National AIDS Housing Coalition (NAHC) envisions a community where housing is a human right and HIV disease ends. Housing  improves health outcomes of those living with HIV and other chronic conditions.The end of HIV/AIDS critically depends on an end to poverty, stigma, housing instability, and homelessness. This workshop will focus how to integrate health resources into housing subsidies and development. We will explore how communities have used local Medicaid dollars, 340b resources, private insurance and collaborations with health providers to develop housing subsidies and supportive housing units for people who are homeless, unstably housed and or low-income.
