Fair and Affordable Housing Program


The Fair and Affordable Housing Program will spotlight the impact, outcomes and value that affordable housing brings to communities and deliver data and tools that help researchers, practitioners and advocates build evidence-based cases for why affordable housing matters. The research involved with this program examines the availability of affordable housing, evaluates programs that encourage the production of affordable housing, and identifies the effects of subsidized housing on surrounding neighborhoods. It also will use its research to both support and develop more balanced, forward-looking housing policies that acknowledge the importance of affordable rental housing and new roles that housing may play in promoting resilient communities
