HUD recently announced the availability of up to $362,000 for one or more grants from FY 2019 funding from the Office of Policy Development and Research for a research project examining long-term outcomes for individuals following their exit from HUD-assisted housing. HUD's research objective for this project states:
"This solicitation seeks to examine long-term outcomes of households who have exited HUD assisted housing (all programs), also referred to as "leavers." HUD’s purpose is to learn how housing assistance can better support good outcomes, such as economic opportunity and self sufficiency of assisted households, enabling households to exit HUD assistance and thus increase the availability of scarce housing resources for other families in need. HUD is soliciting proposals to explore this topic by taking advantage of HUD administrative or tenant data linked with other longitudinal data sources on households or individuals. The results of such data linkages may also inform and contribute to HUD’s continuing efforts to understand trends in “positive” and “negative” exits from its programs."
Applications are due July 14, 2020.
