How Public Housing Can Increase Opportunity

A new report from the Urban Institute explores how public housing authorities (PHAs) across the country work to help low-income families move to high-opportunity neighborhoods. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Moving to Work program grants PHAs unique flexibility to increase housing supply in growing or job-rich communities, according to the report. Moving to Work and Neighborhood Opportunity finds that PHAs use incentives for landlords, tenant support programs, and comprehensive mobility services such as workshops and housing search assistance to encourage movement to high-opportunity locations.
