Battling COVID-19 has emphasized the region's shortage of quality housing and its impact on health outcomes.
The pandemic laid bare longstanding inequities of our society, including access to housing and health care. As part of the Institute for Nonprofit News project "AC: Life After COVID," journalists from KCUR and The Kansas City Beacon are reporting on the metro's low-income quality housing shortage and the urgency of dealing with it, the measures to provide medical treatment to the homeless and the hidden plight of "precariously housed" families accepting substandard housing conditions
