CURA's research in the area of housing is focused on housing access, affordability, and choice. Recent projects have included the relationship between subprime loans and foreclosures, neighborhood and community responses to the foreclosure crisis, the housing careers of very low income people, historic preservation and conversation districts, intergenerational and lifecycle housing in metro area suburbs, threats to manufactured housing in Minnesota, and the housing needs of aging baby boomers in Hennepin and Carver Counties.
The CURA Housing Forum is a monthly brown-bag discussion of housing issues and research in the Twin Cities that is free and open to the public.
