2/23 Affordable Housing: National, State, and Local Perspectives

click to play

Eight decades ago, the landmark 1949 Housing Act declared a national goal of a “decent home and suitable living environment” for all Americans. Half a century ago, the landmark New Jersey Mount Laurel I decision mandated that Garden State municipalities provide their “fair share” of affordable housing. Yet affordable, equitable access to shelter remains a pressing societal challenge. This lecture provides a critical forum for examining affordable housing past, present, and future from the multiple perspectives of national, state, and local government. David Listokin, Distinguished Professor and Co-Director, Center for Urban Policy Research, Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University, led the panel discussing various perspectives on the topic.
