Abt’s Top 10 Housing Reads in 2021

As 2021 drew to a close, we looked at some of our most-read stories on housing, communities and asset-building. From HUD’s long-running annual report on homelessness to our first-of-its-kind study of homeless encampments, from housing as a form of economic mobility to emergency rental assistance, this is the work we shared in 2021 that garnered the most attention. Take a look to see if you missed anything, peruse our site for lesser-known--but no less important--observations, and stay tuned for new insights as we continue to work toward equitable housing solutions in 2022.
