The tool is intended to take a look at neighborhood-level conditions to help community leaders prioritize allocation of rental assistance funds and looking at extremely low income renters.
  • Stephen Sherman and Luis Guajardo from Rice University's Kinder Institute described their analysis that estimated the annual cost of evictions to Harris County, where more people are evicted each year than anywhere in the U.S., with the exception of New York. See the blog and Technical Report.
