About the Report
The Impacts of Foreclosures on Families and Communities details what is known about how foreclosures adversely affect households and their neighborhoods – from children and the elderly to public safety and local property tax revenues. The report, a comprehensive resource for local officials, advocates, and concerned laypeople, also looks at policies, programs, and response strategies to prevent or mitigate the fallout.
A second Urban Institute publication, The Impacts of Foreclosures on Families and Communities: A Primer, provides a handy convenient scan of the research and policy landscape. Both reports were funded by the Open Society Institute.
