New research on urban landlords and the Housing Choice Voucher Program

Posted October 8, 2018 | Categories: Blog

UHERO's Philip Garboden led research recently released by The Poverty and Inequality Research Lab at Johns Hopkins University on the role landlords play in shaping the residential experience of low- and moderate-income renters, especially those with housing choice vouchers. The research team uses interview data from 127 landlords and property managers in Baltimore, Dallas, and Cleveland combined with ethnographic observations collected between 2013 and 2015 and 1.5 million administrative records on landlords and tenants in the HCV program from HUD’s 50058 database.

The report is available here: https://www.huduser.gov/portal/sites/default/files/pdf/Urban-Landlords-HCV-Program.pdf
