The COVID-19 pandemic reinforces the reality that housing and where we live are pillars of everyday wellbeing. In navigating recovery strategies, addressing the root causes of poor health will aid cities in achieving positive long-term health outcomes for all residents. Cities, towns, and villages must be intentional in sustaining healthy homes and communities and can do so by prioritizing interconnected factors within their comprehensive strategies. Join the National League of Cities for a discussion with municipal, philanthropic and policy leaders who will examine strategies for leveraging public-private partnerships in the quest for greater housing and health equity within COVID-19 recovery strategies.
