Project Manager, Housing Stability Programs and Policy

Kate Brantley is a project manager at Poverty Solutions, specifically supporting the initiative’s housing stability and homelessness agenda. Brantley has been involved in community-engaged projects that seek to evaluate the impact of housing policies, identify best practices in policy design and program implementation, and build evidence in support of housing justice organizing. Their work has largely focused on rental housing and evictions in the city of Detroit, specifically looking at the impact of pandemic-era policies on tenants’ ability to fight displacement. Most recently, Brantley has supported projects exploring the relationship between housing stability and equitable access to education.

Brantley holds a master’s degree in social work and a bachelor’s degree in sociology and political science, both from the University of Michigan.
