Trinity Health’s Community Investment Program is explored in a new case study. The case study covers the program’s history, design and implementation. The purpose of the program is to support projects, or loan pools, that will reduce social and economic disparities that cause unequal health outcomes for minority and low-income communities. These focus areas include but are not limited to: advancing access to higher education; fair and affordable housing; economic development and empowerment; and access to healthy, affordable food.
In 2019, Trinity Health signed onto the Healthcare Anchor Network (HAN) Place-Based Investment Commitment in which Trinity Health committed $75 million to place-based investments. As with other signatories, Trinity Health pledged to deploy the full allocation within five years.
