Improving Homeownership Outcomes Is Critical to Narrowing the Wealth Equity Gap

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
Urban Institute

Homeownership is a critical wealth-building tool, yet households of color find it more difficult to achieve homeownership than white households do. To better understand these inequities, the Urban Institute has spent more than a year analyzing homeownership disparities by race and ethnicity, including the racial and ethnic gaps in housing wealth, the disparate impact of economic cycles on Black and Hispanic homeowners, and the future of racial homeownership gaps absent key policy change.

Join the Urban Institute for a summary of their findings and an ensuing conversation about strategies to advance racial equity in homeownership. They will discuss policy solutions state and local policymakers can implement in collaboration with the federal government, community organizations, service providers, and industry to ensure homeownership is equally attainable and beneficial for households of color.
