Corporate entities have a vested interest in the housing and food networks that serve their employees and customers. Corporations can engage by purchasing any food and housing-related services (e.g., healthy meal boxes) from local businesses, offering one-time grants to help service providers build the infrastructure needed to meet their requirements (e.g., improved IT, larger fleets of trucks), issuing low-interest loans to food and housing systems as part of their investment portfolio, and offering financial incentives to customers to create sustained demand for food and housing services (e.g., lower premiums for healthy food coaching or maintenance of low- and moderate-cost housing units).
Payers have a particular interest in investing in food and housing to help their members stay healthy and can activate many parts of their balance sheet to meet upfront and recurring investment needs that serve their members across the state.
