- The Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies released 2016 Update on Homeownership Wealth Trajectories through the Housing Boom and Bust, which it had originally released in 2013. “It examines the goals of homeownership and lessons from the housing crisis.”
- The Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development released “Who is Lending and Who is Getting Loans?” report, finding that lending data does not match NY’s demographic data. For example, 22 percent of New Yorkers are black and 29 percent are Hispanic, but 8.7 and 8.4 percent of mortgages went to those groups in 2014, respectively.
- Enterprise Community Partners and the Center for Outcomes Research and Education released “Health in Housing: Exploring the Intersection Between Housing and Health Care”, which shows that having affordable housing paired with health care services reduces emergency room visits, lowers Medicaid costs and increases access to primary care.
