Posted on April 19, 2002

[LISC e-newsletter]

The Brookings Institution Center on Urban and Metropolitan Policy has released two new housing and welfare studies. The first, Housing Strategies to Strengthen Welfare Policy and Support Working Families, offers a policy agenda to reduce the affordable housing gap, encourage location decisions that are more accessible to jobs, and support replication of housing strategies that boost a successful transition from welfare to work. The second, the Importance of Housing Benefits to Welfare Success, concludes that housing assistance can clearly make a difference in moving families from welfare to work. These publications are available on the Brookings Institution website at Housing Strategies and Housing Benefits.
