Housing Equity Study Assessment

The Palm Beach County Housing Equity Study is the first of its kind in the county. Other studies, including the 2021 Palm Beach County Affordable Housing Needs Assessment have addressed the scope and scale of Palm Beach County’s affordable housing supply and demand conditions. The findings of the Affordable Housing Needs Assessment identified concentrations of persistent and acute affordable housing needs in less affluent communities of color. The following study delves into these longstanding inequities and disparities providing an analytical perspective and narrative that should prove helpful in determining the most effective policies and strategies for targeting affordable housing resources to communities of color and in greatest need.
