College Housing Assistance Program

Can government subsidized housing vouchers and property-based subsidies improve the college completion prospects for community college students? This rigorous evaluation examines the College Housing Assistance Program, a partnership between the Tacoma Housing Authority and Tacoma Community College.

With support from The Kresge Foundation, Arnold Ventures, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Education Northwest we are learning from the program’s implementation and assessing the impact on students’ academics, health, and other life circumstances. In 2020, we will release the first full evaluation report. Read the pre-registered evaluation plan and our first brief.
