Affordable Housing

A variety of government-subsidized programs provide affordable housing so that low income households can afford a decent place to live. Our research 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. Our Subsidized Housing Information Project (SHIP) uses a combination of data sources from public and private agencies to track and map current subsidized housing units across New York City, and evaluate strategies for developing new affordable housing.
