The Oklahoma Housing Needs Assessment is a statewide study that analyzes by county, and the State as whole, the affordable housing needs of moderate to low income households by income and population subsets, homeless, communities’ disaster resiliency, fair housing, residential lead-based paint hazards, and forecasts future housing demand.
