Public Housing & Public Health: Identifying Impacts & Experiences of Renovation & Redevelopment in San Francisco
PROJECT SUMMARY: Our proposed research investigates how Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) policy implementation in San Francisco affects people living in public housing. RAD is a public-private partnership that transfers management of public housing sites from traditional public housing authorities to private developers in order to leverage the private capital necessary to renovate deteriorating public housing structures. Using data from two health service systems, we will investigate the change in prevalence of health conditions and health care utilization before and after renovations.
