Funding Opportunity for Housing Policy Research

UPDATE: Read frequently asked application questions about this opportunity.

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.
