HOUSING EQUITY Lab (HOUSEq)
The Housing Equity Lab (HousEq) investigates the role of policy and design in the production and preservation of housing, protections for residents and prevention of homelessness, and processes of creating housing equity.
Starting from the basis that housing is a human right, it seeks innovative ways to ensure that each individual has a place to live and belong within our shared communities.
The Housing Equity Lab advances its work through five priority areas:
designing and innovating effective and efficient strategies for housing production.
maintaining existing affordable housing stock through physical repairs and supports for individuals and households.
building parity between renters and homeowners and ensuring dignity and security at all rungs of the housing ladder.
Partnership and emPowerment
keeping people within their homes and communities by reducing the risks of eviction and displacement.
creating public engagement and building community participation to shape the future of the built environment.
