PD&R Research


PD&R Research

PD&R undertakes studies and issues reports on HUD programs to determine how well they are achieving their objectives and how they can be improved. PD&R also conducts studies and issues reports on housing and community development matters not tied directly to HUD programs. In addition to research reports, PD&R produces case studies, periodicals, and other resources designed to support evidence-based decisionmaking.
