Making the case for hospitals to invest in housing
The American Hospital Association (AHA), in collaboration with NORC at the University of Chicago, is serving as the evaluation partner for a new initiative, Accelerating Investments for Healthy Communities (AIHC). This issue brief, the first in a series, discusses how hospitals are addressing social determinants through investments in affordable housing. It also outlines an innovative framework, the capital absorption framework, which the Center for Community Investment (CCI) developed and is now using to help health care organizations assess their local community investment system.
