Event Description

New Haven has 1 of the lowest rental vacancy rates in the country while simultaneously being impacted by a boom of high end, luxury apartment buildings resulting in a limited number of quality, affordable rental units for working families in the City.  According to Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s “How Home Affects Health”, there is a strong and growing evidence base linking our homes to our health. Our neighborhood’s location can make it easier or harder to get a quality education and earn living wages, to afford to eat nutritious food, and to enjoy active lifestyles. 


Many of you are already doing important work in this area. Please join Dwight Hall at Yale Center for Public Service and Social Justice,  InnovateHealth Yale, the Office of Public Health Practice at Yale School of Public Health, and Tsai CITY for a Community Public Health Night: Affordable Housing in the Elm City to learn about and start to design innovations in this space.


You’ll be hearing from local non-profits and start-ups who are working to change these statistics and will also have an ideation session for everyone to brainstorm and collaborate on solutions.


At the end of the night, a winning group will be selected to receive a prize!

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
