PD&R Quarterly Update: Cash Assistance and Housing

Banner for Cash Assistance and Housing

On Thursday, November 16, 2023, HUD’s Office of Policy Development & Research (PD&R) will host a hybrid PD&R Quarterly Update on cash assistance programs and housing. Across the country, guaranteed income programs are pioneering a new model of assistance to low-income households. To date, more than a hundred programs, piloted across a range of communities, have provided direct payments to local participants. In this Quarterly Update, PD&R will bring together practitioners, government officials, researchers, and funders to better understand these guaranteed income programs and their impact on housing opportunities. Leaders of programs in Philadelphia (PHLHousing+) and Denver (Denver Basic Income Project) will share their experiences, including aspects of program design, partnership strategies, and research findings.
