The Kresge Foundation awarded a $100,000 planning grant to the Baltimore Regional Housing Partnership to help increase health equity through housing in Baltimore in collaboration with the Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The grant will allow the partners to prepare their Healthy Children Demonstration, a program that will link the Housing Choice Voucher program with housing mobility counseling in order to help up to 100 low-income Baltimore families with children to achieve better health and economic outcomes.

“We know that having a stable home in a good community can greatly contribute to improved health for all members of the household, especially children. Helping children in HABC families grow up healthy is a priority for us as an organization,” said HABC CEO and President Janet Abrahams in a press release. “This collaboration between BRHP, HABC and Johns Hopkins School of Public Health will enrich the lives of the residents we serve and ensure healthy, affordable housing alternatives.”
