Overcoming Barriers to Housing Affordability Roundtable
The Lincoln Institute aims to better understand the barriers to implementing housing strategies at the necessary scale in the United States, and specific strategies to overcome those barriers. This roundtable will provide an opportunity for presentation and discussion of research commissioned under the Institute’s Request for Proposals on Overcoming Barriers to Housing Affordability. The research papers and case studies focus on a diverse set of topics including zoning reforms in Oregon, the approval process for multi-family housing in Massachusetts, modular housing in Colorado, and accessory dwelling units in California. The program will conclude with a discussion on the key barriers to implementing housing strategies and the most promising approaches to overcoming those barriers.
