Pre-GHC Roundtable: What’s Next for Housing After COVID-19?
November 17 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
What is COVID-19 Teaching Us about Housing? Will We Learn the Lessons?
How should the pandemic change the way we design, build, and finance affordable housing? How should we shift our affordable housing programs to make housing more resilient and sustainable for residents in the face of future pandemics and other natural disasters?
Kicking off this year’s Governor’s Housing Conference, HousingForward Virginia will convene a 90 minute pre-conference session on Tuesday, November 17 at 3:00 PM. A group of affordable housing practitioners will have a facilitated conversation about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on a range of issues around affordable housing.
HousingForward Virginia is collaborating with Hill Studio, a Roanoke-based design firm, to explore the pandemic’s impact on home design, materials, site planning and location, and other considerations. Other topics will include financing, affordability, housing stability, tenure, and service delivery. The session is designed to generate research questions and policy ideas that will lead to actionable strategies in 2021.
We anticipate approximately 25 housing providers and advocates will participate in this structured dialogue.
