UnitedHealth Group’s Pioneering Health and Housing Initiative
In 2020, UnitedHealth Group initiated a $100 million Health and Housing Fund in collaboration with Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF) and the National Affordable Housing Trust, aiming to bridge health services with affordable housing. Together, they’ve facilitated the construction of 1,000 affordable homes across 13 communities. Prioritizing underserved populations, the partnership ensures each housing unit is integrated with health and social services, backed by $1 million in seed funding. They are also dedicated to tracking health outcomes of residents. The initiative demonstrates a commitment to intertwining community health and housing, with examples from Texas and Oklahoma highlighting their efforts.
