It’s been quite a year for us here at the Center. There’s so much to share, it’s hard to know where to start. So we decided to put together a list of the top ten most exciting developments of the year, it’s been a great one!

  1. We welcomed newcomers Mat and Eileen to the Center!
  2. We’ve published a book, A Place Called Home, with Oxford University Press on the social impacts of homeownership.
  3. We announced the upcoming data release from our Community Advantage Panel Survey.
  4. We released a new report on the use of financial technology to help under-served households.
  5. We also released papers on first-time homebuying, community reinvestment programs, mortgage credit, and more.
  6. We continued work on student loan debt, housing and opportunity, financial capability and affordable housing, credit report checks in hiring, and financial coaching. We look forward to releasing reports on these projects in 2018.
  7. We shared our research with reporters from The Atlantic.
  8. We launched our new website.
