The Future of Affordable Housing in the US: Finding Solutions for Income Inequality in a Post-COVID America
The public event will explore potential solutions to America’s crisis of affordability in housing. We will explore the situation on the ground with regard to housing, and the looming evictions crisis, as the US emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our panel, drawn from business executives, thought leaders, economists, and policy experts, will address critical questions, including:

—How effective have various stimulus and relief packages been at addressing the problem of housing insecurity in the US?
—What long-term opportunities might arise from changes in legislation (including reforms to the LIHTC)?
—How might the US adapt its crisis response to include more ‘automatic stabilisers’ in the housing market for those in need? How might this situation evolve under the new Biden presidency?
—What can state and municipal leaders do to foster the development of more affordable housing across the income spectrum?
—In what ways can business leaders and investors actually help?
—Given the tensions which can often arise between the ‘social’ and the ‘environmental’ components of ESG with regard to housing, how can these trade-offs be pragmatically resolved?

Overall, this event will address the issues of systemic inequity and bias as a result of access to affordable housing. The lecture will also explore potential solutions and policy reforms needed by the Biden Administration to address the problem.

This PPIL event will focus on the DEI essential skill of addressing systemic inequity, as well as covering the topic of social-economic status and classism.
