Research

The Housing Center conducts research on housing and lending patterns in Northeast Ohio and throughout the State.  In addition to our annual State of Fair Housing in Northeast Ohio report, we produce a variety of reports, maps, and other publications examining fair housing and fair lending issues in the region, as well as foreclosure trends, subprime lending, and related matters.

This research has resulted in a number of policy changes at both local and state levels throughout Ohio. The Housing Center has also conducted Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing reports, required under Section 808(e)(5) of the Fair Housing Act for communities that receive CDBG funds, for a number of municipalities in Northeast Ohio.
