National Housing Conference
Grants to National Housing Conference
2014 (Duration 1 year)
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Housing Conference and its research division, the Center for Housing Policy, seek to ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing by developing ideas, resources, and policy solutions to shape housing policy and practice. In 2011, with support from the Foundation, the Conference published accessible literature reviews on the intersection of housing with health and education that have since been widely used and broadly cited. However, the evidence has expanded significantly since that time. The Center will use this grant to synthesize research and create and disseminate case studies, literature reviews, and practical guides on the intersection of housing, health and education.
