Meeting the Health-Related Social Needs of Low-Income Persons: Funding Sources Available to States

Bookmark and Share

States control an array of resources that can be used to provide health care and address the social determinants of health. To assist state policymakers seeking to maximize their leverage by working across state agencies to promote health, NASHP has compiled a chart of funding sources that state agencies use to address social determinants, such as stable housing, safe and prosperous neighborhoods and communities, access to healthy food, physical and mental health care, income support, and transportation. While many documents show states how Medicaid resources can be used for social services or housing needs, this chart aims to bring attention to other funding sources that states use specifically to help adult high-cost/high-need residents live healthy and prosperous lives.
