Affordable Housing Consulting Services:

Neighborhood Opportunity Assessments and Mapping

Tailored to your goals, the custom assessment leverages our proprietary opportunity capital and neighborhood desirability indices to understand how neighborhoods can provide opportunities for low-income families to thrive. Our indices use outcome-based indicators to measure the combined impact of job access, educational opportunity, transit access, and a positive health outlook on the potential for economic advancement. We also look at how neighborhoods are changing in terms of desirability and investment potential. This report will provide you with actionable insights to inform your development and acquisition plans, future client services strategies, voucher payment standards, and more.
