Wide Open Spaces: Preserving Affordable Housing in Rural America


1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Free to all
Underproduction and housing scarcity now impact nearly every community in the United States, including more rural or exurban communities. However, the problems faced by less dense municipalities are very different from those faced by urban centers. With a focus on preserving affordable housing and combating blight, rural communities often have difficulty attracting the investment necessary to manage and maintain their housing stock. For this month’s webinar, please join Up for Growth and a panel of experts to discuss how rural communities are working to solve their housing crisis and the unique barriers they face.
