Learning the True Costs of Living in a Community

Relocating can be one of the most exciting and important decisions a family or individual makes. 

When families relocate, they’re choosing more than just a house or apartment: they are also selecting the schools, job opportunities, green spaces and other characteristics that come with that community.   And, at the center of it all is a community’s transportation network because people need to get to work, kids need to get to school, and families need to get to critical services.

That’s why, HUD and DOT have launched the Location Affordability Portal, a user-friendly tool that helps consumers calculate the true cost of their combined housing and transportation expenses, helping them make more informed decisions about where to live and work.
