Stable and affordable rental housing provides an essential foundation for economic participation and upward mobility. At the same time, homeownership has historically provided a primary pathway to wealth creation in the US. Consequently, the dual aims of affordability and wealth generation can put rental and homeownership policies at odds with each other.
Join us November 13 at 10 am PT/1 pm ET for a research-driven discussion around efforts to increase rental affordability, access to homeownership, and housing stability. Experts will also address how different approaches to these aims will have implications for the ability of housing policy to reduce wealth disparities by race and income.
