Past Event: Terner Center for Housing Innovation 2017 Conference

Promoting Housing Affordability by Expanding Supply and Lowering Costs

Supported by Citi Foundation

Many high-growth, high-cost regions are facing widespread affordability challenges caused in part by shortage of housing, and rising housing development costs. To effectively address this issue, we need to deeply understand both market conditions and policy frameworks (local, state, and national) that are contributing to this reality, and identify and promote the solutions that can change it.

On Thursday June 1, 2017, the Terner Center hosted an invitation-only convening to explore the conditions that underlie the under-supply of housing in high-cost regions and practical innovative solutions which will ensure the development of housing in ways that address both economic inequality and climate change challenges.

The conference was filmed and the video is available below.

The conference featured two keynote speakers:

  • Enrico Moretti, the Michael Peevy and Donald Vial Professor of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley.
  • Shaun Donovan, Former U.S. Secretary for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, in coversation with Carol Galante.

In addition, leading practitioners, national advocates, and innovative policymakers came together on three stimulating panels moderated by some of the nation’s preeminent journalists on housing and urban issues: Laura Kusisto of the Wall Street Journal, Conor Dougherty of the New York Times, and Liam Dillon of the Los Angeles Times.

Join the conversation on social media with #supplymatters17.
