Studies Examine Benefits of Low-Income Housing

Since 1990, Woda Management has been responsible for the creation of more than 7,000 properties throughout the Midwest and other areas of the United States. At the forefront of the Woda Management strategy is providing its clients with a variety of environmentally friendly low-income housing options.

In many locations nationwide, there is an ongoing debate on the effect that low-income housing has on crime in the area. However, according to a new study conducted by Princeton University, not only does low-income housing provide a viable living alternative for poorer families, but it also decreases crime in the area.

In fact, studies have shown that many residents of neighborhoods where low-income housing is built don’t notice a change in environment, and often are completely unaware of its installation. Research has also shown that low-income housing helps create jobs in these areas, both through construction and consumer spending once the homes are inhabited. This combination of creating jobs and providing a viable living situation for those under the poverty line are the subject of many housing models and studies concerning the positive effects of low-income housing.
