Series Summary

This webinar is the fourth in a six-part webinar series on “The Physics of Affordable Housing” which features experts speaking on different housing affordability topics.

Each session will be a 45-minute interactive conversation offering a variety of perspectives.


The US is experiencing a chronic and seemingly intractable affordable housing crisis. This crisis includes 3 key dimensions consisting of:

  1. a massive housing supply gap, particularly for entry-level, single family starter homes,
  2. insufficient availability of affordable mortgage credit to meet market demands, and
  3. persistent trust gaps, particularly among communities of color that too often have seen the American dream of homeownership evaporate, and along with it the opportunity for intergenerational wealth creation.

To defeat this crisis, will require every weapon in the arsenal, along with creative thinking on new ways to do business. Please join our panel of experts as they discuss their views on the most pressing challenges driving this crisis along each dimension, as well as solutions that are demonstrating great market and public policy potential to turn the tide, including at the local, state, and federal levels.
