Housing
Housing provides a foundation for social and economic mobility, with profound consequences for people’s health, safety, education, employment, and wealth building. Urban assesses housing affordability and options, evaluates housing programs, and studies how housing affects people’s well-being. We also propose strategies to help the people and places most in need and redress the harms of structural racism in housing markets. Policymakers, program designers, implementers, and advocates rely on Urban’s expertise to ensure all people have equitable access to healthy, sustainable housing.
