Housing and health are deeply connected, but it can be challenging to translate that connection into policies, programs, and practices. City leaders often have to convince community stakeholders that health and housing are intertwined in order to implement housing improvements.

In this webinar, learn about a new messaging guide for advancing health and equity through housing to help you make the case for housing policy that will directly benefit resident wellbeing and public health. The Healthy Housing Learning Lab highlights key strategies and messages to advocate for housing improvements.

Key Takeaways:
  • This guide was developed for those working to build support, within city government, among key stakeholders and  across the public, for health housing policies – as part of a comprehensive housing strategy.
  • It is important to work from shared values – know your audience and their priorities.
  • People believe something when they hear it repeatedly from multiple sources.  Make sure you and your partners stay on message and consistently drive the same beat.
