Where we can afford to live impacts where we live. And a neighborhood's location can make it easier—or harder—to get a good education, earn a living wage, access nutritious food, and receive quality health care.
There are long-standing and complex obstacles that keep stable housing out of reach for too many in our society. But there are ways to achieve racial equity in housing and neighborhoods.
RWJF's Policies for Action program seeks research proposals to investigate how public policy can put quality, affordable housing within reach and help achieve racial equity in housing and neighborhoods. Researchers will be paired with government, private sector, and nonprofit housing organizations to explore the effectiveness of public policies aimed at increasing housing access, affordability and stability. We are particularly interested in studying policies in small- and medium-sized cities (populations of 50,000 - 500,000).
