Evictions and the Rental Market, Now and after the Pandemic
October 7, 2021
As the CDC moratorium on evictions has ended, we look to researchers and practitioners to understand what has happened and what comes next for tenants, landlords, and the rental market. What are the risks that remain? Are current policies managing these risks effectively? What lessons can we carry forward to ensure rental housing needs are met?
The Racial Wealth Gap and Access to Opportunity Neighborhoods
September 29, 2021
Recent research from the Cleveland Fed finds that differences in neighborhoods remain between Black and white households with the same levels of both income and wealth. This finding suggests that neighborhood differences are not driven by the racial wealth gap, but instead reflect ongoing racial hostility, discrimination in the housing market, or preferences by Black households for the strength of social networks in predominately Black neighborhoods. We discuss potential explanations and the implications for access to economic opportunity.
