Abstract

For many in the US, the rent is still too high - more than a quarter of US renters pay more than half of their income on housing, and ten percent of this group receives government housing subsidies. In new research, Judy Geyer examines how housing vouchers influence where people choose to live. She finds that when the maximum allowable voucher amount can vary by neighborhood, rather than being capped for an entire city or town, then recipients are more likely to choose to live in neighborhoods with lower crime rates and better schools.
