Keys to a “Healthy” Housing System

Posted under Policy

The BiPartisan Policy Center’s Housing Commission currently has a timely question being discussed in its online Housing Expert Forum: What are some of the key aspects of a healthy housing system? And how can the success of these features be measured? 

Some of the answers aren’t new to those involved in affordable housing development and policy. The forum experts have highlighted the importance of private sector involvement; maintenance and preservation of existing housing; continuing to expand the options for affordable housing to those that need it; and creating housing that just doesn’t give people a place to live but address their larger personal needs.

A full discussion is on the BiPartisan Policy Center’s site here.
