Our Work

Lack of access to stable, affordable housing is associated with negative health outcomes and higher health expenditures. Health care providers and payers across the country are exploring interventions that increase access to housing and the wrap-around services that help patients and community members stay in their homes.

The Health Law Lab develops resources describing current gaps, innovations, and policy opportunities on this topic, and works with partners to drive related health system reform.

Key Projects

HIV, Housing & Employment Project

The Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation has partnered with the HIV, Housing & Employment Project as a member of the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Provider team. This three-year project, funded by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau, supports the design, implementation, and evaluation of models of care that coordinate health, housing, and employment services. The project aims to identify interventions that are sustainable, replicable, and that improve health outcomes for people living with HIV.
