Maya Brennan

Bio I am a principal investigator on the Urban Institute's How Housing Matters project, where I lead a research, policy, and communications team in clarifying housing’s connections with other social and economic outcomes and identifying and elevating evidence-based, cross-disciplinary solutions. My recent research and policy publications focus on family homelessness, engaging investors in equitable and inclusive housing, and housing systems changes that could reduce hardship and promote well-being. I have also written about motivational approaches to asset-building, housing authorities' asset-building programs, veterans permanent supportive housing, and the connections between housing and education. I began my housing career as a landlord-tenant hotline counselor before opting to pursue an MS in urban policy analysis and management from the New School. My previous roles include research positions at the National Housing Conference and serving as vice president of the Urban Land Institute Terwilliger Center for Housing.
