High-Poverty Neighborhoods in Metropolitan America
Rolf Pendall leads a team of over 40 experts on a broad array of housing, community development, and economic development topics, consistent with the Urban Institute's nonpartisan, evidence-based approach to economic and social policy.
Pendall's research expertise includes federal, state, and local affordable housing policy and programs; land-use planning and regulation; metropolitan growth patterns; and racial residential segregation and the concentration of poverty. Pendall currently leads the Institute's evaluation of the HUD Choice Neighborhoods demonstration and a HUD-funded research study on the transportation needs of housing choice voucher users. Between 1998 and mid-2010, Pendall was a professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at Cornell University. Pendall holds a Ph.D in City and Regional Planning from the University of California at Berkeley. RPendall@urban.org
