Effectively Preserving Philadelphia's Workforce Housing Stock
This issue brief examines the effectiveness of home repair programs as a neighborhood revitalization and workforce housing strategy. The brief argues that increased investment in Philadelphia’s Basic Systems Repair Program (BSRP) could not only prevent residential abandonment and maintain more workforce housing, but would actually be cost-effective.
The brief presents housing stats to demonstrate the poor condition of much of the city’s workforce housing stock and how the city is losing housing units from abandonment. It also compares the cost of increased public investment in repair versus the real costs of losing housing to abandonment.
