A report by the Urban Institute, supported by the MacArthur Foundation's How Housing Matters initiative, identifies a range of evidence-based housing policies that can be used to promote economic opportunity and upward mobility. The report is rooted in the increasing body of research findings that opportunity is tied to place. It proposes a menu of federal, state and local policy tools highlighting how housing policy can enable people to have both choices about where they live and opportunities wherever they choose to call home.
