PPL fellows Liana Dragoman and Kaja Kühl are evaluating how our work helps people applying for affordable housing.
As part of Public & Collaborative: Designing Services for Housing—our collaboration with the NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD) and the Parsons DESIS Lab—our team developed four pilot proposals to enhance the application process for affordable housing. HPD accepted all four proposals and implementation of the pilots is underway.
Our fellows are supporting the pilot roll-out and also collaborating with the agency to evaluate the implementation process and eventual pilot outcomes. You can now download their Preliminary Evaluation Plan.
