THIS IS A PAST EVENT - A FULL RECORDING OF THE EVENT IS AVAILABLE HERE
A health crisis. The threat of more mass evictions. A constantly insufficient housing supply. A high-cost housing market, riven with inequalities, that gets less affordable with each passing year. The challenges of DC’s housing market have been exposed even more by the COVID-19 pandemic. But a new inclusionary zoning plan and increased funding for the Housing Production Trust Fund may hold hope for a movement toward a better outcome. Join the Georgetown Global Cities Initiative and the Kalmanovitz Initiative for a panel discussion on affordable housing in DC and how a New Social Compact might address local housing conditions. The panel discussion will be held on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm via Zoom.
The panel is the first in a series addressing housing issues from the local to the international level.
