The study found that high blight areas are a drain on the City’s resources and budget dollars.

Economic Impact Study
As Dallas Habitat works to accomplish its mission, it also generates millions of dollars of economic activity and supports hundreds of local jobs. An economic impact analysis conducted under the auspices of the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University (SMU) looked beyond how Habitat affects individuals and examined its impact on the region. Conducted in the summer and fall of 2010, the study used an input-output model that tracks how spending flows through the region. Dallas Habitat’s direct spending generates spending by firms and individuals, multiplying the impact of its activities.
