Poverty, Inequity, and Disparity -- 10/8/20 Daypass -- Building and Preserving Affordable Housing in the United States: Federal Resources and Local Efforts
Speaker: Lan Deng, Associate Professor of Urban & Regional Planning Lan Deng is an Associate Professor of Urban & Regional Planning at the University of Michigan. She studies housing and real estate development in both the U.S. and China. In both countries she has conducted extensive research to examine the different types of interventions directed towards housing and real estate development. Her research seeks to examine the outcomes of these interventions and how they were shaped by both market forces as well as institutional choices. Speaker’s Synopsis: In the United States only one out of every four eligible low-income households is able to live in a subsidized housing unit. This limited supply of affordable housing is also shrinking. This talk will first provide an overview of the major federal affordable housing programs. Using Detroit as an example, it will then examine the recent efforts of producing and preserving affordable housing under the country’s largest affordable housing production program, the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program.
