From the Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development:
A community dedicated to connecting state Medicaid agencies, managed care organizations (MCOs), and community-based Medicaid agencies with housing partners and residents to improve life outcomes.
This community is a space for Housing Is members interested in early childhood. Evidence suggests that the quality and stability of housing for young children have significant impacts on their physical, social-emotional, and mental development. A focus on early childhood programs and policies can have lasting impacts on children’s success later in life, including educational and health outcomes.
