Housing and Homelessness Research at RAND

For more than 30 years, RAND research has informed housing and homelessness policy and practice.

The RAND Center on Housing and Homelessness is the singular RAND research center focused on the urgent need for innovative housing and homelessness policy solutions. Topics of focus include housing policy and regulation, housing affordability, homelessness and homelessness prevention, and intervention program effectiveness.

Our research staff includes more than 100 experts working on housing-and-homelessness-related issues, including behavioral scientists, economists, policy researchers and analysts, statisticians, engineers, and Ph.D. students. Their collective professional backgrounds, academic experience, and cultural diversity uniquely position us to answer the toughest policy questions.
