Resilient Communities: Building Strong Communities Through Affordable Housing

In this podcast, we hear from Heather Schwartz, a policy researcher based in RAND's New Orleans office who studies the effects of integrating low- and middle-income families on the school experiences of children from low-income families. Her most recent work asks whether 11 cities' inclusionary zoning policies actually achieve the policy goal for social inclusion. This work is relevant to communities that are interested in retaining lower-income families who might otherwise be priced out of their high-cost housing markets.
