It is expected that the number of health care jobs in health practitioner offices and other non-hospital and nursing home settings will increase by 31 percent and home healthcare jobs will increase by 60 percent between 2012 and 2022.(By contrast the overall number of jobs in the U.S. is projected to increase by only nine percent.) However, growing job opportunities do not necessarily ensure that health workers will be able to afford homes in the communities where they work. This year’s edition of Paycheck to Paycheck examines housing affordability in 210 metro areas for workers in five important and growing health care occupations: medical records transcriptionist, medical billing clerk, home health aide, geriatric nurse, and case manager.

This case study examines the Family Self-Sufficiency program offered in Montgomery County, Maryland, in partnership with the Housing Opportunities Commission.
This paper profiles six localities that have adopted inclusionary housing policies tied to upzoning, referred to here as “inclusionary upzoning.” Each profile provides a sketch of how the policy is structured and how effective it has been. Drawing on these examples, the paper explores how neighborhood context, market context, and policy design may affect the success of inclusionary upzoning policies and their potential for adoption in new areas of the country where inclusionary housing has not yet been implemented. The paper concludes with a discussion of areas for future research.
