[Webinar Series] Researching an End to Homelessness: Election Year Policy Ideas (The Affordable Housing Crisis)

October 22, 2020

The nation simply cannot end homelessness without solving its housing affordability problem. Researchers at Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies help the nation understand the crisis by regularly tracking housing markets, unit availability, and rental cost burdens on low-income people. A recent white paper by Algernon Austin delves deeply into approaches that could guarantee everyone has a home while also rectifying the results of historical policies that created racial/ethnic disparities in access to housing. This webinar will offer an overview of this work.


  • Algernon Austin, NAACP Legal Defense Fund
  • Chris Herbert, Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University
  • Nan Roman, National Alliance to End Homelessness (Moderator)

This webinar is a part of the Researching an End to Homelessness: Policy Ideas for Election Year 2020 Webinar Speaker Series, which presents research-based solutions to ending homelessness developed by a list of researchers who have recently published in this area.
