Housing in America: Integrating Housing, Health, and Resilience in a Changing Environment

Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and causing more damage in cities across the United States, which directly impacts the health and resilience of individuals and entire communities.

Through lessons learned from three case examples—in Greensburg, Kansas; San Diego, California; and Cedar Rapids Iowa—this report also shares key takeaways for creating and sustaining healthier and more resilient people, housing, and communities in the face of an evolving climate.
