Lightning Talks: Creative Solutions to the L.A. Affordability Crisis

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 10:45 AM – 12:00 PM Convention Center, Room 515 Open to All Attendees
Concurrent Session

Los Angeles remains drastically underbuilt in terms of the number of housing units needed to maintain affordability for the majority of its residents. Recent local political victories to provide financing for new housing should make a small dent in this problem, but the need is so great that the challenge in developing sufficient housing is daunting. This session asks what lessons can be learned from successes of the past and applied as solutions to this crisis. Come hear from a diverse group of housing leaders in the public, nonprofit, and for-profit sectors who will present their stories about overcoming obstacles to address affordability by getting the housing built.
