Accurate and timely data and research are essential to HCIDLA’s work. Understanding and visualizing social, demographic, economic, and environmental factors enables us to identify areas of need and/or opportunity. Meaningful performance data shows how well programs work and where there is room for improvement. Housing policy research and departmental strategic planning move HCIDLA’s mission forward.
Research, Data and Geospatial Analysis
Understanding and visualizing key factors is essential to identify areas of need or opportunity. Geospatial analysis can help summarize thousands of words with a single image.
Performance Evaluation and Planning
Meaningful performance data can show how HCIDLA’s programs perform, whether they meet their goals, and room for improvement. The Strategic Plan shares HCIDLA’s long-term vision with goals, actions and related metrics.
Public Policy Development
The Public Policy & Research (PP&R) Unit addresses these types of housing inequities through all of our current policy proposal work, and will continue to do so as part of our anti-eviction efforts such as through the City’s proposed Eviction Defense Program (EDP).
