An HIA of the 2015 Qualified Allocation Plan for Low-Income Housing Tax Credits in Georgia
This health impact assessment (HIA) examined how public health perspectives could be more strongly incorporated into affordable housing policy in Georgia through the Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP), overseen by the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and updated on an annual basis. Overall, affordable housing investments were found to improve health and quality of life, and increase opportunity for Georgia residents. To capitalize on this gain, numerous opportunities were identified through research, analysis, and stakeholder input. This assessment was made possible through a grant from the Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts.
