Connecting Housing, Transportation + Education to Expand Opportunity: Living, Learning + Moving Together

Cost-burdened low- and moderate-income families are challenged to afford housing in any neighborhood that is in good condition and is appropriate to family size. Finding and affording such housing in a neighborhood with access to regional transit and high-quality schools is often completely out of reach. A recent National Policy Convening examined current policy and research around the nexus between housing, transportation and education.

Convening members included the Center for Cities in Schools, Enterprise Community Partners, Mile High Connects, National Housing Conference and the Natural Resources Defense Council. The summary report from their convening synthesizes the ideas and recommendations generated at the event. The report includes a discussion of innovations around the country and policy recommendations for designing cities where all families are connected to opportunity.
