New Approaches to Affordable Housing in Oakland
12:30 p.m. | Tuesday, April 17, 2018
Sky high construction costs are driving the average rent for new apartments to a level out of the reach of hundreds of thousands of Bay Area residents. Building subsidized affordable housing is one approach to dealing with this problem, but there simply isn't enough subsidy available to produce the quantity of units necessary to meet the demand. Is there a long-term solution in finding market-based approaches to building housing, without subsidy, at a price that more local residents can afford? Come hear from those who are trying to make this happen in Oakland.
