PAHRC produces a number of yearly research reports that examine key themes in affordable housing and provide updated statistics on the supply of housing assistance, those receiving assistance, and the impacts on residents and communities.

Housing Impact Report (PAHRC Report)

The annual Housing Impact Report (formerly the PAHRC Report) is a comprehensive source for research and statistics on assisted housing. Produced each year with updated statistics on those receiving housing assistance and the impact of affordable housing, the Report’s purpose is to foster a better understanding of the need for housing assistance and how this assistance meets the needs of low income families and their communities.
