Place and Mobility Matter

Research shows that affordable housing located in diverse, mixed-income neighborhoods that provide strong schools, parks, grocery stores and other benefits can provide many benefits to you and your family including positive outcomes related to health, work, and education. These neighborhoods are referred to as “opportunity neighborhoods”.
