New Approaches to Affordable Housing
As the country’s affordable housing deficit increases, the topic of housing affordability gains momentum as a critically important policy topic. Even Oklahoma City, which is renowned for its affordable housing stock, suffers from a lack of affordable, quality housing units for moderate and low income households. Yet sustaining an affordable housing stock extends beyond federal community development funds and the low income housing tax credit. Communities across the country have created innovative methods to develop, rehab, and sustain affordable workforce housing.
The recently published report “Preserving Multifamily Workforce and Affordable Housing: New Approaches for Investing in a Vital National Asset” looks at 16 leading innovative financing vehicles from around the country that have created or preserved almost 60,000 units of affordable and workforce housing. Please join us to hear the author of the report, Mr. Stockton Williams, provide an overview of the report’s findings. Mr. Williams, a leading expert in housing and economic development, joined the Urban Land Institute in 2015 as the executive director of the Terwiliger Center for Housing.
