Healthy Rental Housing: Current Risks and Opportunities for New Partnerships

Posted by Mayor's Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity on June 12, 2017

Date: Thursday, June 29, 2017
Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: Community Behavioral Health, 801 Market Street

This roundtable will bring together service providers and professionals from the healthcare and affordable housing communities to discuss the housing problems encountered in privately owned, unsubsidized rental units and their impact on chronic health conditions. The roundtable will also highlight initiatives currently underway in Philadelphia that may offer models for intervention or new opportunities for leveraging resources to improve habitability and basic quality in the rental housing stock available in low income neighborhoods.

The Roundtable event is being held in June to promote the second annual Healthy Homes month, designated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In addition to featured speakers and panelists, resource tables and displays will be available to provide more information on local programs and services.

Please register through Eventbrite by Tuesday, June 27th. Space is limited.
