"Supporting Childhood Wellness through Healthy, Affordable Housing"

"Supporting Childhood Wellness through Healthy, Affordable Housing" is a profile of Paseo Verde, a mixed-income, transit-oriented development in Philadelphia with an emphasis on resident and community health. 

The key takeaways: "Green affordable housing can support children’s health by improving air quality, reducing exposure to toxins, and offering opportunities for physical activity. An on-site health care center further supports underserved residents and extends health benefits to the broader community."

LISC invested more than $11 million into the $48 million development, including its first New Markets Tax Credits allocation in Philadelphia and a pre-development loan and grant.

This four-page factsheet, prepared by the Center for Housing Policy, the research division of the National Housing Conference, includes details on the development's history, opportunities and challenges highlighted by the project, and contact information.
