Earlier this year, UnitedHealth Group announced an additional $100 million investment in the Health & Housing Fund, a partnership with SAHF and NAHT. The Health and Housing Fund was first announced in June of 2020, initially providing $118 million in funding for affordable housing communities.
CORES certification acknowledges a robust organizational commitment to improving resident well-being through enhanced service delivery. CORES certified organizations are eligible for Fannie Mae’s Healthy Housing Rewards™, a financing mechanism that provides funding for property-level services. CommonBond, a SAHF member, received this financing at two properties in Minnesota, helping them to expand opportunity for residents and achieve better outcomes.
A recent study from CommonBond shows that every $1 invested in eviction prevention activities yields $4 in social return in the forms of increased educational outcomes, lower healthcare usage, and decreased use of homeless shelters.
