Human Impact Partners, Advancement Project, and National People's Action conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) of Congress’ federal 2011 proposed Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) project to re-organize public housing funding and management structures. Using mixed research methods, the HIA assessed the impacts of RAD on: management, evictions, and resident organizing; housing affordability, stability, and quality; and social capital.

Outcome

The 2011 bill passed before the HIA was released. But, some of the HIA recommendations were incorporated into the RAD final implementation notice.
