The Housing Solutions Lab at NYU Furman Center is accepting research proposals for Learning from Housing Policy Innovation in Small and Midsize Cities, a new initiative to support research that examines housing policies and programs in small and midsize U.S. cities. With funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Lab will select a maximum of four proposals to each receive up to $25,000 in support.
In alignment with the Lab’s mission, this opportunity aims to fund research that helps cities advance evidence-based housing policies that promote racial equity; increase access to opportunity; and improve health and wellbeing for residents.
Research proposals may address a broad range of policy topics that have the potential to inform local decision makers by offering new housing policy knowledge. Policy topics may include, but are not limited to: affordable housing, housing stability, housing quality, neighborhood conditions, and the intersections between housing and health, education, and/or economic opportunity.
Eligible applicants include researchers from U.S.-based colleges and universities, nonprofit organizations, and local or city governments. Researchers from all policy disciplines employing quantitative, qualitative or mixed-methods research designs are eligible to apply.
