Housing Mobility Strategies and Resources
A growing body of evidence demonstrates the impact of living in different types of neighborhoods, particularly on children. Federal rental assistance programs, especially the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program can enable low-income families with children to move to safe neighborhoods with high-quality schools. But many families participating in the HCV program remain in high-poverty areas, encountering a wide variety of barriers in using their voucher. Housing mobility strategies can help families access more communities of their choice. This page contains CBPP resources that explore this topic.
