Professor Claire Herbert was awarded a $20k grant from the Sociological Initiatives Foundation for a participatory action component of her new research project, “When Home is Illegal: How Law and Governance Shape Informal Housing in Lane County.” Claire will be working with a local nonprofit to identify regulatory changes that can help reduce the harms of unsheltered homelessness and promote safety and stability for community members without access to conventional housing.
