Enterprise: National Health and Housing Survey

Putting Off Health Care to Cover the Rent

More than half of the renters surveyed (54 percent) said they have delayed medical care specifically because they couldn't afford it, underscoring the urgent quest for health equity across the country.

“By working closely with health care organizations, we're creating ways for renters to afford the health care they need,” said Laurel Blatchford, president, Enterprise Community Partners.
