Make better, more justifiable decisions for affordable housing and people experiencing homelessness with ArcGIS
Planners at the local level can make significant impacts in government policy. Along with policy makers, planners must be able to define the need, benefits, and challenges in assigning areas for affordable housing and economic mobility, preventing homelessness, and understanding growth capacity. Taking a data-driven approach with GIS, planners can develop multiple housing scenarios and measure their potential effectiveness. Policy makers can then evaluate and visualize these scenarios, collaborate with community leaders, and engage the public to meet expectations for transparency and accountability.
