Affordable HousingThis seminar explores the law and policy of affordable housing. We will begin with an overview of housing market dynamics—both for those who rent and those who own their homes—and ways in which housing markets fail. We will then turn to the primary policy tools that have developed in response, examining in detail several cutting-edge topics including the subprime mortgage crisis, on-going challenges for ensuring fair housing and equal opportunity, and sustainability and “green” affordable housing.
