Up for Growth on July 14 will release its groundbreaking report, Housing Underproduction in the United States, a first-of-its-kind longitudinal study tracking nationwide housing underproduction by state and across 814 metropolitan and non-metropolitan units of geography – the most detailed analysis of America’s housing shortage ever produced.

By measuring the gap between the number of homes needed in a given area versus those available, Up for Growth found that 47 states, the District of Columbia, and 169 metropolitan areas are experiencing a severe shortage of homes. The report also presents a new and innovative policy framework that offers a roadmap to policymakers to solve housing underproduction and increase housing equity in high-opportunity neighborhoods – places that are rich in jobs, transportation, infrastructure, and community assets.
“As people migrate in search of jobs, education and economic opportunities, the demand for housing in the most populous and economically productive regions of the U.S. has far exceeded the production of new homes,” said Mike Kingsella, Chief Executive Officer of Up for Growth. “This is resulting in America’s most urgent economic, environmental and social equity crisis.”
Our new report finds 47 states, DC & 169 metropolitan areas experiencing a severe shortage of homes. On July 14, we’ll present our national housing underproduction analysis & a new policy roadmap for policymakers working to solve the US housing crisis. https://bit.ly/2vxuVd8
