Fixing Housing in America

Fixing Housing in America

October 20 at 1:30 pm PDT/4:30 pm EDT


The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified pre-existing socioeconomic inequities including lack of access to affordable housing. Nationwide, economic zoning restrictions—along with political resistance from residents—have limited new construction. Social mobility has declined as housing-related costs have soared. However, the prospect of economic recovery presents a chance to address housing shortages while promoting broad-based growth. Development of new units can boost short-term employment and consumer activity as it improves long-term capacity to attract and retain employees. By containing increases in housing costs, communities can alleviate pressures on their most vulnerable members at every stage of life.

Panelists will address policies and options for increasing access to affordable housing in underserved communities. Their wide-ranging discussion covering the local housing landscape and place-based investment will focus on development solutions to improve the lives of all Americans.
