Fannie Mae Announces Healthy Affordable Housing Innovation Challenge

Fannie Mae's "Innovation Challenge" is a two-year, $10 million commitment to source and develop new ideas to address housing needs, starting with affordable homes in underserved communities, and recognizing that obtaining affordable housing is a major step towards a healthier future.

Applicants for the Innovation Challenge should respond to one or more of the following problem statements:

  • How might we use innovative technology and design to improve affordable homes to better support health, promote overall wellness, or prevent disease and illness?
  • How might we leverage finance vehicles to incentivize the creation of affordable homes that promote health and wellness?
  • How might we foster design that promotes diverse, sustainable, multigenerational affordable communities in which all individuals can remain a vibrant part of their community through every stage of life?
