Gold Roof Award for Housing Research Excellence

Prize: National/international honor

Description

The Housing Assessment Resource Tools (HART) project has developed a suite of 3 evidence-based tools aimed at helping governments and housing providers to better understand and address their housing needs. The project offers extensive research and data analysis as innovative solutions to Canada’s housing crisis. These free, online tools work together to identify populations in need — including National Housing Strategy priority groups. The tools also determine affordable shelter costs, locate sites ideal for affordable housing development and offer regulatory tools to help preserve existing housing. The HART project provides valuable insights to advance Canada’s goal of reducing core housing need as outlined in the National Housing Strategy Act.
