Quick-Response Research on Long-Term Strategic Issues. Task 47. Affordable Housing and Transit

The objective of this project is to develop a guide and innovative products that would assist transit agencies to identify strategies and tools to increase the provision and access to affordable housing along transit and multimodal corridors.  The study should: (1) Introduce the key definitions of affordable housing in the context of transit. (2) Discuss the relationship between affordable housing and transit ridership.   (3) Identify the relationship between the development program (density, uses, and depth of affordability) and demand for transit and vice-versa.   (4) Identify state, local, and regional agencies with successful synergy between affordable housing and transit. (5) Identify the cultural and societal barriers to successful, equitable TOD planning and implementation, and the associated solutions for mitigating these challenges. (6) Examine best practices and provide strategies for successful affordable housing in TODs (shall include anti-displacement tools). (7) Identify and evaluate various funding and financing methods to increase transit services to affordable housing. (8) Identify and evaluate various funding, financing, and alternative delivery methods for creating TOD focusing on affordable housing (equitable TOD).
