Current Projects in the British Isles

 

  • Housing Charity for Britain - Radical, informed and packed with groundbreaking reports, Shelter's independent magazine ROOF is a must for anyone wanting to keep up to date with the latest developments in the world of housing. Read more.

 

  • "Shelter" and the "Homelessness Act of 2002" - After 8 long years of campaigning, this new legislation related to providing for the homeless in the UK finally was given Royal Assent. Working with "Shelter", a national campaigning charity, which handles over 100,000 homeless or badly housed people every year, is an act of kindness by many local volunteers. Read the history and objectives of "Shelter" and the "Homelessness Act of 2002," and to find out ways you can assist on a local basis in this critical problem of adequate housing, visit their website.

     

  • Entrust "Empowering Neighbourhoods Throughout Europe" - The main purpose of the ENTRUST project, is to assist the actors in urban regeneration to decide on what forms of collaboration are appropriate for their objectives, at which stage of the process, and under what conditions, provided by the policies and administrative frameworks. They target all actors in integrated urban regeneration on the operational level, who conceive and take part in various projects. Visit their site and review the current 8 case studies including the Gorbals of Glasgow.

     

Current Projects in the United States

  • L.A. Economic Roundtable - Since 1983, the L.A. Economic Roundtable has worked on two primary goals: to build a sustainable economy and to create inclusive communities. Producing solid, reliable data to aid policymakers is the Roundtable's area of expertise.

    The website's "areas of research" and "current projects" will give visitors a good overview of what types of issues the Roundtable addresses. Industrial policy, the labor market, and human services are the areas of research the Roundtable concentrates on, and each area has its own separate link.

    Some of the papers and presentations that are available in the Human Services area of research include a 129 page downloadable report "Where We Sleep: The Costs of Housing and Homelessness in Los Angeles" and a new report entitled "Dividends of a Hand Up: Public Benefits of Moving Indigent Adults with Disabilities onto SSI". The Roundtable's current projects include research on affordable housing, a crisis indicator to identify high-need homeless people, and the water use efficiency sector's impact on jobs.

  • The New Suburb - Under the banner of "urbanism" or "smart-growth", planners are increasingly building suburbs using the old "Main Street" model; a web of pedestrian-friendly streets cradling a mass-transit-served town center, surrounded by a mix of housing alternative. We suggest that you take an interesting virtual tour organized by the "National Geographic Magazine", of a new urbanist neighborhood as an alternative to sprawl development.

     

  • The Enterprise Foundation and our more than 2,200 Network members work together to provide low-income people with affordable housing, safer streets and access to jobs and child care. We are nonprofit, community-based organizations, public housing authorities and Native American Tribes from around the country creating powerful partnerships to rebuild communities and empower people in neighborhoods nationwide.

  • Subsidized Housing Units - The housing choice voucher program is the USA federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. This site provides a searchable database of subsidized housing units, also known as Section 8 housing. Search by location (state, county, city), housing type, and number of bedrooms. This service is from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).



  • Growing Problem of Suburban Poverty - The Brookings Institution doesn't shy away from the tough topics, in fact, they often embrace them. This recent book by two of their distinguished scholars, Elizabeth Kneebone and Alan Berube, looks at the growing problem of suburban poverty. As they note, "suburbia is now home to more poor residents than central cities." This site, created to promote the book, has great resources for policy analysts, scholars, journalists, and the interested public. The accompanying blog is a great way for visitors to read thoughtful commentaries on the metropolitan geography of low wage work or an anti-poverty policy that works for working families. The Communities section is another great feature, providing background information on the seven areas profiled in the book, including south Cook County, Illinois and Tukwila outside of Seattle.
