MetroTrends week in review

  Last week, two MetroTrends bloggers tackled two dimensions of the affordable housing challenge facing US metros:

  • Susan Popkin describes a new, evidence-based initiative being launched to help the kids growing up in one of DC’s most dangerous and distressed public housing projects.
  • Margery Turner highlights a speech by HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan on the potential of housing policies that offer poor families meaningful choices about where to live.



As an organization, the Urban Institute does not take positions on issues. Experts are independent and empowered to share their evidence-based views and recommendations shaped by research.
