Equitable Growth Profile of Fairfax County

Overview

With a median household income of $110,292, Fairfax County, Virginia is one of the wealthiest counties in the nation—but not all residents share in this economic prosperity. As its population has grown and diversified over the past 25 years, inequities in income and opportunity by race and geography have also increased. Given that communities of color are expected to increase from 45 to 72 percent of the population by 2040, taking concrete steps to create pathways for the communities being left behind to connect to education and good jobs is critical for the county’s economic future. This study was produced in partnership with the County and other local leaders to support their efforts to build a stronger and more equitable county. Read the summary and the full profile, and see the press release.

Fostering Community Benefits: How Food Access Nonprofits and Hospitals Can Work Together to Promote Wellness

Overview

As part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, nonprofit hospitals are required to provide benefits to the communities they serve to keep a tax-exempt status. In the past, nonprofit hospitals have met this requirement by providing care to uninsured or underinsured patients. Now that the Affordable Care Act has expanded insurance coverage to these populations, hospitals are looking for new ways to give back to the communities they serve.
 
The Affordable Care Act has also tasked these hospitals with conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment and subsequently developing Community Health Improvement Plans to help prioritize the most pressing needs in their community and identify programs and resources that will directly improve patient health outcomes.
 
This new requirement is an opportunity for hospitals to work together with community partners to foster a culture of health by addressing underlying drivers
of chronic disease, which often include lack of access to healthy, affordable food.
