The Terner Center for Housing Innovation produced an important report, An Uneven Housing Safety Net: Disparities in the Disbursement of Emergency Rental Assistance and the Role of Local Institutional Capacity.

As the report’s conclusion says: “The metrics presented in this analysis can offer useful indicators of where pre-existing economic hardship, pandemic-related employment impacts, and limited local institutional infrastructure andm capacity could be contributing to housing instability or hindering efforts to ensure an even and equitable recovery. The findings of this analysis raise several questions and point to areas for further research.”
