San Francisco: Repurposing Maritime Parcels as Affordable Housing

We encourage papers considering the role of landlords and managers engaged with the full range of HUD programs (vouchers, public housing, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, Project-Based Section 8, homelessness services, mixed-income communities, etc.).

The issue’s guest editors are Philip ME Garboden, Crown School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice, University of Chicago, and Eva Rosen, McCourt School of Public Policy, Georgetown University.
