HHS, HUD, and USDA Release Joint Informational Bulletin on Rural Health and Housing Resources

The U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Agriculture (USDA) have released a Joint Informational Bulletin to provide health and housing providers, state Medicaid agencies, state and local housing agencies, and state and local public health agencies with information to better understand existing federal resources and programs that are intended to improve health and housing outcomes in rural America. These resources address reducing physical environmental barriers in the home, increasing safety, minimizing the risk of falls, and supporting the ability of individuals in rural areas to remain in their homes and communities.

The Joint Informational Bulletin is available here.
