  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.
