Fighting For Lower Income Neighborhoods: The Samurai Way

Matthew Freedman, Associate Professor of Economics, Drexel University and Tamara McGavock, Ph.D. Candidate, economics, Cornell University - What has been this genesis of this idea for your neighborhood research? We were inspired by the substantial debate on the merits of home production programs, and particularly housing production programs that promote new development in low income communities. On the flip side, subsidized development aid revitalize blighted communities and may provide housing alternatives. And on the flip side, worsen segregation and it might serve to focus poverty. The extent to which our housing production programs do another or one is of importance in the policy standpoint. 

The Low Income Housing Tax Credit is the housing production program in history it has features that lend itself. We exploited many of these features to get hold of the question of a LIHTC, a superb illustration of a brand-new generation of housing production applications that lean heavily on nonprofit and private associations, influenced conditions. Nevertheless, the effects are very small. Moreover, an influx of families qualified for reside driven them. Our results suggest that, on average, home development under the LIHTC doesn't render neighborhoods less appealing to more affluent residents, as a few critics of the program fear.
