Non-citizens living in federally subsidized housing
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.
Thank you for sharing your perspective on an important housing research topic. Your suggestion will be disseminated within HUD as part of the Research Roadmap idea-generation process. We appreciate your help in identifying important areas for future research. Please continue to share your research ideas with us.
Blair Russell, HUD PD&R
