A study by Matthew Palm, “Scale in Housing Policy: A Case Study of the Potential of Small Area Fair Market Rents,” published in Cityscape investigates the effects of Small Area Fair Market Rents (FMRs) on the share of for-rent listings affordable for Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) holders in five metropolitan areas. In four out of the five metro areas, the use of Small Area FMRs would increase rental listings affordable to voucher holders.
