See How it Works
Gulf Coast Housing Partnership’s Health + Housing innovation creates new financing options for health insurers to invest in affordable homes with integrated health and services. See how this innovation is coming to life in two new housing developments nearing completion in Jackson, Miss., and New Orleans.
In March 2022, Gulf Coast Housing Partnership broke ground on its first Health + Housing pilot, H3C, in New Orleans, with Medicaid Managed Care Organization partner Aetna/CVS Health. H3C will feature 192 affordable housing units. Ascension DePaul Community Health Center will operate an adjoining Federally Qualified Healthcare Center (FQHC).
More recently, in November 2022 Gulf Coast Housing Partnership broke ground on its second Health + Housing pilot, The Pearl, in Jackson, Mississippi. Financial supporters include UnitedHealthCare Community Plan of Mississippi. The project will transform a long-vacant hotel into 76 affordable housing units for seniors. Jackson-Hinds Comprehensive Health Center will operate an on-site FQHC and oversee a team of community health workers to support residents’ health and well-being.
