In HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R), our mission is to provide reliable and objective housing research and market data to our constituents, as well as skilled analysis that assists HUD's leadership in making informed policy decisions. We focus on finding definitive answers to questions about what programs work and how they can be made to work better, through quick-turnaround studies and conferences, as well as through long-term evaluations that systematically measure performance outcomes and suggest possible cost-effective enhancements.

Interim reports of long-term research projects serve as progress reports on implementation, share preliminary insights and discoveries made in early phases of a study, and build a basis for analyzing final outcomes.

HUD’s Learning Agenda: 2022-2026, aligned with the Department’s Fiscal Year 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, frames a multiyear agenda ensuring a robust pipeline of research, including research opportunities we highlight for Congress in the Department’s budget as well as efforts HUD launches in-house and with external research partners. The Learning Agenda draws on input and support from practitioners, advocates, people with lived experience in HUD programs, researchers, and policymakers at the federal, state, and local levels. The Learning Agenda articulates critical, policy-relevant research questions that will inform how HUD invests in evidence building over the five-year strategic planning cycle.
