Homelessness: Steve Metraux, CCRS Director, was busy traveling this summer in conjunction with a project he is involved with that looks at local responses to unsheltered homelessness across the US. As part of this project, he visited New Orleans LA, Santa Barbara CA, Wichita KS and Philadelphia, meeting with local officials, services providers and other key stakeholders to better assess best practices in addressing what has become an increasingly urgent and difficult problem for cities. UAPP PhD student Mimi Rayl is also working on this project as a Research Assistant. Funded by Arnold Ventures, a report based on this research will be publicly disseminated in the fall.

Evictions:  Alexandra Guterbock, an undergraduate UAPP major, was awarded a Summer Public Policy Fellowship to do research on evictions in New Castle County. This has been a topic that has received considerable attention of late due to its links with poverty and homelessness, and little is known about the impact and extent of eviction in Delaware. The fellowship involved Alex interviewing key stakeholders, attending court sessions, and analyzing data from eviction proceedings. She presented her findings to a coalition of legal services and housing providers in Wilmington, and has received funding from the Delaware Community Foundation to turn her findings into a research brief this fall.
