Housing Subsidies to Low-Income Households: A Survey

In this paper we review a variety of issues related to the design of low-income housing subsidies. We discuss project-based assistance (i.e., public housing and privately-owned subsidized projects) and tenant-based assistance (i.e., rent vouchers and rent certificates), as well as the empirical evidence concerning their effects.


Keywords: Housing policy; low-income housing programs; public housing; rent vouchers.
