Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies Report: America’s Rental Housing 2022 Release

On January 21, 2022, JCHS held a virtual event titled "America’s Rental Housing 2022," and invited housing policy experts from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to discuss the report’s findings, how to create affordable housing during economic recovery, and how public policy and private capital can support the creation of affordable housing in desirable markets that are safe from natural disasters.
