Research Overview

On an ongoing basis, we will be posting a variety of research papers funded under the “How Housing Matters” initiative of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, in addition to other research and policy papers from The Anne E. Casey Foundation’s “Making Connections” initiative,  the Urban Institute and other research institutes and universities from throughout the country. If you are aware of research,  policy papers and studies that you believe would help to illuminate the topic of housing instability and its impacts, please let us know by emailing 


NOTE: Our staff is making every effort possible to ensure that research, policy, and practice papers, and other items posted on these pages are properly cited – and that permission to post has been granted where requested. Pleae be patient while we continue to follow up with each link and other material on this website to complete this task.
