Last week, CLPHA was invited to present at a half-day symposium on health and housing hosted by the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington, D.C. CBPP recently released two papers on the ways Medicaid can help address individuals' social needs and what role they think Medicaid should and should not play in expanding housing access. They argue that Medicaid cannot adequately or effectively service the country's significant need for housing resources. Instead, they recommend the health sector join housing advocates in calling for dramatically expanded housing resources. CLPHA's Steve Lucas participated on a panel exploring various health and housing partnership efforts across the country; the other panelists represented Medicaid agencies and community developers respectively. Lucas detailed the success of PHAs' active health and housing partnerships to date and their promise for the future. Highlighting the potential of dynamic collaborations between PHAs and managed care, local health departments, and hospitals, he argued that the health sector needs to work with PHAs if they hope to achieve progress at scale given PHAs' unique role in the community.
