The Cost of Homelessness in Dallas: An Economic and Fiscal Perspective

Description:

This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, briefly describes the system of service delivery to homeless persons in Dallas and examines how other cities deal with their homeless populations, particularly those that have centralized service delivery. This report also documents the growing disparities in property values between the northern and southern sectors of the DCBD and calculates the potential tax revenues, jobs and income that could be generated by a revitalized southern sector.
