HUD Secretary Carson Discusses Healthy Homes Initiatives

With the Department of Housing and Urban Development celebrating National Housing Month in June, HUD Secretary Ben Carson recently appeared at the Bipartisan Policy Center to discuss initiatives tied to health and housing. The Bipartisan Policy Center "is a non-profit organization that combines the best ideas from both parties to promote health, security, and opportunity for all Americans. BPC drives principled and politically viable policy solutions through the power of rigorous analysis, painstaking negotiation, and aggressive advocacy."

Here's how the BPC website described the topic of Dr. Carson's recent discussion:

The advantages of a more integrated approach to the health and housing needs of our country are significant. By more tightly linking the two, policymakers can work to improve the health outcomes and quality of life for vulnerable Americans, while more efficiently allocating limited federal resources. There are many promising collaborative opportunities at the intersection of health and housing as federal departments confront a host of pressing challenges, from combating opioid addiction to recovering from natural disasters.
