Affordable housing development fuels economic growth in a variety of ways. Stable neighborhoods support paths to homeownership and asset growth. That, in turn, attracts new investments which help create jobs and increase local spending.
Access to affordable housing frees up financial resources that allow low-income residents to invest in those services that support their long term health including insurance and health care services, day care and education, and more nutritious food.
Efficient Government Spending
When communities support residents across a broad spectrum of socio-economic statuses, that allows governments to free up spending on homeless, health and other social programs and invest in other key areas.
Research & Capacity Building
We examine and advocate for scenarios to help community development and finance leaders create housing programs and development trajectories that cultivate a healthy income mix in order to best serve neighborhoods in the long term.
