Recognizing the deep tie between community development and health, NeighborWorks America combines its investments and strategies in health, affordable housing, community building, financial capability and economic development to support health and well-being at each critical stage of life.
COVID-19 has helped drive home the importance of housing and community developers as key health partners. In response to the pandemic, NeighborWorks network organizations have pivoted their work to respond to new and ongoing community needs. They have provided rent relief and secured food, along with equipping residents with personal protective equipment and providing spaces for COVID-19 testing and vaccines. Housing and community developers have risen to the occasion of the moment, keeping communities safe, healthy and well.
Through grants, training and technical assistance, we support the efforts of our network and the community development field to develop healthy homes and communities.
