Why housing assistance matters

Housing assistance helps millions of families remain housed, access higher‐quality neighborhoods, and, by freeing up scarce financial resources, afford other vital necessities.

The Housing Assistance Matters initiative educates Americans about the vital role of housing assistance.

The initiative is a project of the Urban Institute, made possible with support from HAI Group. The Urban Institute is a non‐profit, nonpartisan research organization and retains independent and exclusive control over substance and quality of Housing Assistance Matters Initiative products.
