The public sector does not wait for water to be provided to homes and businesses, it actively intervenes to ensure that it happens. Can we treat housing similarly by pivoting the role of the government in the provision of homes? Considering housing to be essential infrastructure — an essential need for humans to thrive — could drastically change the way that it gets delivered. Join a panel of state legislators and policy leaders as they discuss this concept for the first program in our new “Housing the Region” series.
