Report Underscores Need to Preserve Affordable Housing Near Transit

A new report from Reconnecting America tracks access to opportunity in metropolitan areas across the country. Each of 366 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) are graded according to a set of 33 indicators, focusing on education, jobs, affordable housing, health services, transportation, cultural amenities and outdoor spaces. These indicators track each region’s progress towards being a “complete community,” a term used in the report to describe communities that provide access to economic and health opportunities for all people, regardless of income level.
