Across the nation there are millions of residents living in publicly subsidized housing. In close proximity to many of these housing sites are health centers, some of which are federally funded Public Housing Primary Care programs that provide comprehensive primary health care services to residents of public housing and others of which are health centers that are seeking resources to better reach these residents to provide services.
The goal of the conference was to strengthen the capacity of health centers to meet the specialized primary care needs of residents of public housing. Conference participants included health care professionals, staff of Primary Care Associations (PCA) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) staff, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) staff, public housing officials, residents, researchers and other key stakeholders.
This is the only national conference with a focus on federally funded Public Housing Primary Care (PHPC) programs and other health centers that provide primary health care services to residents of public housing.
The Health Care for Residents of Public Housing Training Conference was sponsored by the National Center for Health in Public Housing, North American Management and is supported by a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to provide training and technical assistance to the Health Center grantees.
