Event description

Description

Despite robust demand across the country for affordable starter homes and rental units, stringent land-use regulations, high construction costs, and an ongoing shortage of skilled laborers have made it difficult, if not impossible, to profitably produce middle-market housing.

Innovative strategies to overcome these challenges will be the focus of this half-day conference, which will feature the finalists from the inaugural Ivory Prize for Housing Affordability. The finalists, which include private, non-profit, and public entities, were honored for their “ambitious, feasible, and scalable” efforts to change how American housing is designed, built, financed, and/or regulated.

The presentations and discussions are designed not only to increase awareness of innovations in housing, but to spur connections and conversations that can advance new, innovative approaches to solving our country’s housing affordability crisis.

This event is free and open to the public, and will also be livestreamed on the GSD website.
