Kinder Institute Resources:
Houston Housing Research
In the Houston area — like the rest of the country —a growing number of residents is struggling to afford housing.
The Kinder Institute estimates there are 215,000 to 435,000 households seeking affordable housing in Harris County, yet there are only 90,000 units in Harris County that involve some sort of subsidy.
Throughout 2017, the Kinder Institute is conducting research, hosting events and producing reports that highlight the multiple angles of this complex issue. This page is intended to serve a hub that consolidates the Kinder Institute's resources related to this ever-important topic.
