The Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, which is affiliated with Harvard's Graduate School of Design and Kennedy School of Government, addresses a broad range of housing issues through research, education, and public outreach programs, including a biennial report on the state of rental housing. Rental housing is a vital resource for approximately one-third of Americans, as more people choose to – or must – rent because of the ongoing foreclosure crisis and recession. The grant funds rigorous research and a comprehensive analysis of the state of rental housing and the population it serves that will inform ongoing housing policy debates.

The Joint Center will use this grant to produce its fourth report, in 2013.
