Tech Transfer: Tools for Assisting Low Income Households With Finding Location-Efficient Housing

Andree Tremoulet, Portland State University


Through a previously funded research project, Encouraging Low-Income Households to Make Location-Efficient Housing Choices, our team developed a toolkit to assist households utilizing Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers with finding location-efficient/affordable housing. These tools are currently in use by the region’s four public housing authorities (PHAs). This technology transfer project provided the tools to social service providers in the Portland region and a presentation on research findings and policy implications to transportation researchers, professionals and students.
