The Connecticut Fair Housing Center has partnered with the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity to perform research that leads to a better understanding of how to support and promote inclusive, diverse communities of choice: communities and neighborhoods where families choose to live; where housing and schools are stable and well supported; where employment is accessible; and where all racial and ethnic groups, and persons with disabilities, are an integral part of the larger community.

Recognizing that housing is an important link to schools, employment, transportation, smart growth, and health care access, the Connecticut Fair Housing Center looked to the Kirwan Institute’s work in the area of opportunity mapping in order to identify how fair housing can become more of an intervention point for marginalized communities across the State. The Kirwan Institute has an array of experience in opportunity mapping. The opportunity based housing model has been adopted by organizations across the nation.
