Examining Long-term Outcomes Following Exit from HUD-Assisted Housing

Through this Notice, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is announcing the availability of up to $362,000 for one or more grants from FY 2019 funding from the Office of Policy Development and Research for the following research project: 

To date, there has been little systematic research on the long-term outcomes of households and/or individuals who leave HUD-assisted housing, nor are there unambiguous measures of positive and negative exit for most HUD programs. 

In 2018, HUD adopted a strategic goal to increase the rate of positive exits from assisted housing (all programs). Positive exits primarily refer to households who are able to end participation because of increased economic self-sufficiency and ability to afford market-rate housing but could also refer to households who voluntarily leave HUD-assisted housing for purposes of marriage, family formation, or relocation for job or education. In contrast, negative exits may be caused by evictions, being forcibly relocated, major health problems or mortality. Reasons for exit from HUD-assisted housing may be unclear and difficult to categorize as either positive or negative (e.g., moving in with a partner, friend or relative). 

Preference Points: Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) preference points are available under this Notice.
