Report Oct 17, 2022
Using data from the 2018 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP, which has monthly income amounts for 2017) and the National Bureau of Economic Research TAXSIM model, we estimate how accurately data from the first quarter of the year can predict credit amounts a person will ultimately qualify for based on their annual characteristics. Low-income people are more likely than higher-income people to experience financial difficulties, so we focus our analysis on families with children at some point in the year with incomes below 200 percent of (twice) the federal poverty level (FPL). If...

Case study Nov 29, 2022
Many older LGBTQ+/SGL people who pioneered coming out of the closet are now forced to go back in. As their housing needs and preferences change with age, prejudice is still rampant. And under the U.S. Fair Housing Act, gender identity and sexual orientation are not explicitly protected classes where housing is concerned. Creating appropriate housing for LGBTQ+/SGL seniors must be informed by the life experiences of older people in this community, which often include family rejection, mistreatment, and even violence. This means increasing our cultural competence—from the terminology used...

Successful diabetes care for vulnerable populations demands a multi-prong approach, deploying direct health interventions, medications, and support from a range of community resources to address the social determinants, which impact diabetes. This brief will highlight, through case studies and program descriptions, the important role of non-clinical staff in both the health center and housing setting to support individuals and families struggling to prevent and keep diabetes conditions under control.

Report Nov 17, 2022
Homelessness is a traumatic experience with long-term consequences, particularly for infants and toddlers in their most critical stages of development. Yet homelessness among young children is hidden. Lack of shelter, fear of having children removed from parental custody, and restrictive eligibility criteria for housing programs mean that most young children experiencing homelessness stay in places that are not easily identified. To this end, SchoolHouse Connection and Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan analyzed data from twenty states that have formed broad-based coalitions...

Webinar Nov 8, 2022
On October 13, 2022, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra extended the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, effective through January 11, 2023.

At the Housing Is Working Group webinar on November 8, 2022, we heard from UnitedHealthcare about the important actions needed to ensure individuals retain their Medicaid enrollment and how PHA staff can support...

The series highlights the promising work of the EHS-CCPs to date, particularly related to pandemic recovery and stabilization, workforce support, and expanding access to holistic support for children and families, especially mental health support. The briefs highlight the many roles that states can play in establishing and expanding their own EHS-CCPs, including by using Preschool Development Grant Birth to Five funding and aligning CCDF quality funding with supports needed to establish and grow the Early Head Start model. The EHS-CCPs take many forms in states and communities across the...

Case study Oct 25, 2022
Unsheltered homelessness is on the rise amid a systemic and widespread lack of affordable housing, supportive services, and livable wages. As the housing crisis worsens, homelessness has become increasingly visible and, as a result, increasingly dominant as a public concern. Instead of addressing the issue’s root causes—a lack of housing and supportive services—many cities have leaned into punitive responses that criminalize homelessness, such as arresting people for sitting or sleeping in certain public places. But this approach is costly and ineffective. Police don’t solve homelessness,...

Medical debt is a critical challenge to Americans’ financial stability and well-being. People with medical debt are more likely to forgo needed medical care, have difficulty meeting basic needs, and face an increased risk of bankruptcy. Recent Urban research shows there are great disparities in who carries the most medical debt. Adults who live in communities where the majority of the population are people of color are more likely to have medical debt in collections reported on their credit reports. In particular, Black adults are more likely to have difficulty paying for family medical...

Policy Brief Sep 28, 2022
Approximately one in five adults reported experiencing household food insecurity in both spring 2020 and again in summer 2022, after a decline in reported food insecurity in spring 2021. High food price inflation, along with elevated costs for other basic needs, such as transportation and rent, have likely eroded food budgets in the last year. In addition, some of the safety net responses that buffered food insecurity in 2021 are no longer in place. In this brief, we use data from the Health Reform Monitoring Survey, a nationally representative survey of nonelderly adults, to assess food...

Policy Brief Oct 12, 2022
Disabled individuals and families in federally assisted housing face multiple challenges in gaining access to housing units and services that meet their needs—despite legal frameworks meant to help them. This brief focuses on working-age disabled individuals and families with a disabled household member who live in federally assisted housing. It presents evidence of the challenges with federally assisted housing processes and supports for residents with disabilities, and provides recommendations that could help these processes and supports better meet legal obligations and resident needs.

Case study Oct 25, 2022
According to UN-Habitat, the world needs to build 96,000 affordable homes every day to address the global housing crisis by 2030. Yet, better utilizing existing housing stock—through options such as shared housing—can make a significant dent in the need to build more housing. With college students often challenged to find affordable housing and many older adults living alone in homes with spare bedrooms, these two groups are increasingly benefitting from living together. Universities are often well-suited to facilitate students living and learning with older adults in nearby communities...
