From TAP into Paterson:
"The Housing Authority of Paterson (PHA) and the Paterson Division of Health are partnering to offer unvaccinated resident participating in the PHA’s Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) $100 per family member over the age of five that gets the vaccine.
"Extensive science tells us that getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent contracting COVID-19," Irma Gorham, PHA Executive Director, said. "Where vaccinated patients have gotten COVID-19, the impact has been much less severe."
From the Fort Worth Report:
"After The Holston in the Alliance corridor opened in June, Kendrick Ladd moved in with his clothes, a few personal items and his sister’s car. He is an Army veteran who was dealing with homelessness.
Today, Ladd, 32, is running a mobile mechanic business, Kendrick Ladd’s Auto Repair. He is working on getting the LLC paperwork complete.
CLPHA has been in conversation with Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) staff in the Executive Office about future work promoting maternal health equity, particularly postpartum care. The Biden-Harris administration is hosting a Maternal Day of Action on Tuesday, December 7.
HHS has asked us to identify PHAs and community partners working on maternal health initiatives, particularly those that are just launching or have big developments coming out soon to be a part of the announcement.
Public housing authorities know that providing stable housing is only the first step in helping families thrive. A comprehensive approach that combines health, education, and housing programs has shown to dramatically improve life outcomes for low-income families. Public housing authorities have been in the vanguard developing cross-sector initiatives for their residents, who represent extremely low-income and vulnerable populations.
