The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Operating Low-Income Housing: The Cost of Cooperative vs. Rental Units.

Parliament, Claudia, Stephen B. Parliament, and Anita Tegmi.

Operating expenses for eighteen housing developments were traced over a four-year period in the late 1980s. Eight were rental projects and ten were cooperatives. They were selected to be as similar as possible except for the difference in ownership. Cooperatives were found to operate at a lower cost than rental units. The implication is that public policies would do well to encourage cooperative ownership.
