Washington, DC (Hybrid Event)

Urban Institute

Today’s housing supply problem is one of the biggest threats looming over the future of homeownership. A lack of new construction, in combination with rising interest rates, racial disparities in homeownership rates, and climate change, have all compounded to create an evolving housing crisis. 

How can first-time homebuyers gain and sustain access to the existing housing stock, a traditional yet overlooked source of affordable homeownership? The Urban Institute and NCST (National Community Stabilization Trust) will highlight the impact of those challenges on households and communities in this event and explore solutions for change.
