The purpose of this plan is to create an impact investment strategy for RMHF that explicitly links health and housing. The strategy will use impact investing, an investment strategy that directs capital to enterprises that generate social and or environmental benefits for the surrounding community. One of RMHF’s goals is for the investment strategy to offer strategies that address the entrenched racism and inequities in the City of Richmond. Impact investing will enable RMHF to be a contributing partner with Richmond as it moves away from a history of unfair housing policies that negatively impact countless citizens to a healthier, more equitable region. Through implementation of this plan, RMHF will change the environment in which stakeholders engage in health and housing issues by creating impact investing models that represent balanced partnerships - through authentic engagement and collaboration.
