Housing Policy and Affordability

The School of PPPM has begun developing a leadership role on this topic in Oregon, reflected by research and a housing affordability symposium it is organizing with support from President Michael Schill and Governor Kate Brown. Housing policy and affordability is a central component of the public policy literature related to diversity and inclusivity. For example, a recent report from the Urban Institute identified decisions related to housing as a key building block for creating communities that are more inclusive.
