Housing directly affects individuals’ health and the wellbeing of entire communities. The Building Healthy Places Initiative elevates health as a priority in housing.
As the result of a competitive process, ULI District Councils in Arizona, Chicago, Sacramento and Tampa Bay were selected to convene member-led task forces to identify policy and regulatory barriers to healthier and more equitable places and provide recommendations for local policy shifts and reforms. Working through late 2020, each District Council Task Force will illuminate local policies and practices that make health-promoting development difficult or increase the vulnerability of low-income people, build a case that reform is needed, and prepare specific recommendations for shifts in policy and practice.
