In early November, the Healthy Futures fund — a collaboration of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), Morgan Stanley and The Kresge Foundation — announced that after fully funding the pilot initiative started in 2013, it would provide another $100 million to finance affordable housing development, community health centers, and local services that address the social determinants of health in high-poverty areas. The fund takes a community development approach to health. It’s key goals include:
- expanding access to primary care and other health programs
- revitalizing commercial corridors and creating jobs in blighted areas
- developing efficient ways to finance neighborhood revitalization plans.
