To address housing shortages and housing affordability crises, state and local governments are increasingly looking to zoning code reform to enable housing types beyond single-family homes to be built in their communities. But how much do these policies alone improve access to housing for all, and what else do policymakers need to consider to create sustained and significant positive change in our housing markets? Join the Urban Institute and guests as we discuss how states and localities have embraced zoning reform, the evidence supporting the effectiveness of upzoning, and other policies that should be paired with zoning reform to achieve racial equity and social mobility through housing.
