In October 2013, the Fair Housing 49507 project was funded as part of the Urban Research Cluster. The goal of this interdisciplinary project is to work collaboratively with the Fair Housing Center West Michigan (FHCWM) in the 49507 neighborhood in Grand Rapids.
Within the larger framework of demonstrating a successful model of urban revitalization over a 3-year period, the Research Cluster project focused on the question "What are the intersections between housing data and access to other social determinant's in people's lives?"
