Louisville Housing Initiative Case Study


Greater Louisville and the surrounding counties have been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and long-term housing inequalities, leaving residents struggling to achieve economic stability. To address these challenges, Metro United Way and Unite Us disseminated and tracked $1M through the Unite Us Payments solution to provide longer-term housing and wraparound support to 406 clients struggling with the continued effects of the pandemic.

The pilot program sought to:

  • Enhance community resilience through designated, capacity-building funds.
  • Optimize access to funds based on evolving needs and priorities.
  • Increase the visibility of data to support the need for flexible funding streams and identify other funding sources.

The results? Significant improvements in individuals’ mental and physical health with fewer reported unhealthy days.

There is a potential $8.00 per member per month higher medical cost associated with having an unhealthy day. This indicates long-term cost savings could be realized by increasing the number of individual healthy days.
