Non-citizens living in federally subsidized housing - allen650 - 10-08-2015

As a researcher who focuses on housing issues in immigrant communities, one topic that has caught my eye recently is the experience of non-citizens in federally subsidized housing. In contrast to many other federal public benefits (E.g., TANF), non-citizens have not experienced the same kind of restrictions in their access to federally subsidized housing. That said, HUD doesn't publicly release data on residents living in federally subsidized housing. I would really benefit as a researcher if HUD included citizenship in the RCR reports and as a field in the microdata set that PD&R releases for the use of researchers.
