Living Cities, Urban Institute Research Report: A Landscape Scan of Homeownership for Households of Color

Homeownership has been a primary wealth-building opportunity in the U.S., and can impact a family’s economic outcomes across generations. Living Cities partnered with the Urban Institute to provide data for the six cohort cities, the five states where these cohort cities are located, and nationally around homeownership for households of color.

The research report, “A Landscape Scan of Homeownership for Households of Color,” highlights the systemic barriers to homeownership for households of color, how shocks such as the global COVID pandemic largely affect people of color, and what policy makers and other stakeholders can do about these issues.

We recognize Wells Fargo for funding both this research and our homeownership work in the Closing the Gaps Network.
