The attached research/literature matrix was completed by Abt Associates in 2022 as part of a broader research proposal for SAHF. This is a compendium of existing research (as of May 2022) that examines the impact of service-enriched affordable housing on resident outcomes and property performance. There is a growing evidence base that demonstrates how service-enriched housing can improve resident health, economic mobility, housing stability and other outcomes, as well as improve property financial performance. However, many of the studies listed in this matrix are small in scale, observational and/or case studies; more robust research is needed to make causal claims for these outcomes.
