A PRRAC-NHT Program Review. By Peter Kye, Michael Mouton, and Megan Haberle.
Synopsis: More must be done to create affordable housing in well-resourced neighborhoods and provide real housing choice to low-income families. To address these issues, innovative models of housing acquisition are beginning to emerge, with a focus on creating new access to high-opportunity neighborhoods for low-income households. These initiatives provide pathways to mobility and create affordable housing by acquiring existing market-rate housing in areas of high opportunity, for example, in areas with high-quality public school systems. By focusing on affordable housing supply, they are emerging as important complements to housing mobility programs that focus on expanding choice within the Housing Choice Voucher program through counseling and improved program administration.
