Publications in this section highlight tools and strategies for addressing housing affordability challenges in your community. The Center’s housing solutions resources cover a broad range of topics – from state and local policies to preserve and expand the supply of affordable homes to efforts to meet the housing needs of older adults or families in areas vulnerable to natural disasters.
This report from the Center for Housing Policy explores the effects of the growing population of older adults on the demand for housing, the challenge of providing meaningful housing choices for older adults of all incomes, and the policies that could help communities across the country respond to the dual challenges of providing older adults with affordable housing and adequate services.
This report, prepared for the What Works Collaborative, outlines a series of non-statutory policy options that could be adopted by HUD to imporve access to mainstream supportive services by residents of subsidized housing. These policy options address shared challenges and constraints on the use of common space to deliver sevices to residents and members of the surrounding community, that affect family and senior properties across the country.
Created in partnership with AARP, this toolkit provides a detailed exploration of these and other challenges facing older adults and describes a range of promising policies that some communities are adopting to address them.
This report discusses some of the housing challenges facing older adults and explores strategies that, if pursued, would better enable them to remain in their homes and communities as they age.
Older adults make up the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, and as they retire and live longer on fixed incomes, the demand for quality, affordable, accessible housing in close proximity to services and other amenities will only increase. Public policy should support a variety of housing options for older adults, including those that allow them the choice to age in their homes and communities.
