The publication shares findings from the New Orleans Healthy Homes Regional Convening focused on enhancing healthy homes interventions to demonstrate the impact of home-based interventions and home improvements on healthcare utilization and outcomes.
The overall goal of the Healthy Homes Regional Convening was to foster engagement and buy-in from housing and health care leaders to support the advancement and scaling of the Healthy Homes Committee’s efforts.
Based on the key takeaways and opportunities elevated through the roundtable series and the
convening, the partners identified three calls to action for stakeholders to advance healthy
homes efforts in Louisiana, including next steps that the Healthy Homes Committee will take in
- Existing healthy homes interventions should be rooted in strong, cross-sector relationships across healthcare, housing, and public health.
- Healthcare entities should serve as champions of health-promoting housing policies.
- State agencies and policymakers should pursue ways to secure sustainable funding for healthy housing.
