The RMHF Trustees recently approved the following Health Equity and the Built Environment grant applications totaling $300,000. Guiding this funding is the recognition that housing stability, economic opportunity, and healthy built environments are key factors in determining health equity for individuals and families. This belief has been informed by internal and external learning opportunities, highlighting the significant relationship between health and housing. One of the organizations funded is led by a person of color.
