Minnesota Housing and Health Equity Fellowship

Uniting health care professionals to advance upstream investments in affordable housing to improve community health. 

Health Institutions are valuable actors in the community investment ecosystem.

Building on the experience gained through our Accelerating Investments in Healthy Communities initiative, this cohort will catalyze the adoption of investment strategies by six Minnesota health systems. Through a yearlong learning cohort, participants will expand their institutions’ knowledge of, capacity for, and commitment to investing upstream to address social determinants of health.  

The cohort brings like-minded healthcare leaders together in a safe space to explore opportunities and innovation and expand investments in housing solutions which address health equity. The Greater Minnesota Housing Fund’s Housing & Health Equity Framework combines economic and social returns, a double bottom-line win for healthcare institutions.

Advancing Housing and Health Equity Investments in Minnesota

CCI’s Accelerating Investments for Healthy Communities laid the foundation for investments in affordable housing.

Health systems will develop partnerships with other actors across the community investment system. 

The initiative will build a network of health care professionals and leaders who value and advocate for affordable housing policy. 

Institutions will move from transactional to transformational community partnerships using the Capital Absorption Framework. 

Participating health institutions will establish a practice of working together to improve community health and collectively address the social determinants of health.
