Panel Discussion: The Future of the FHA and Affordable Housing in Cities

What is the Federal Housing Administration’s role in charting the next era of affordable housing in the U.S.? Join Next City in DC to hear more from panelists Carol Galante, FHA; Sarah Wartell, the Urban Institute; Susan Wachter, Penn Institute for Urban Research; and others.

Sunday, March 3, 2013 – Wednesday, December 31, 1969

10:30am - 12:30pm

On March 4, Next City will host a panel discussion in DC with key leaders in housing, lending, real estate and government to discuss the future of housing policy by examining the role of one of its most fundamental actors – the Federal Housing Administration.

As the U.S. continues to work through the challenges from the foreclosure crisis while also tackling the need for affordable housing in desirable neighborhoods, what new housing policies would make housing accessible to all, while also providing safeguards that would prevent another foreclosure crisis?

This panel discussion, sponsored by Bank of America and held in partnership with Penn Institute for Urban Research, The Urban Institute and National Building Museum, will feature experts including:

Carol Galante, HUD / FHA; Lisa Hodges, Oystertree; Mike Malloy, Bank of America; Susan Wachter, Penn Institute for Urban Research; Sarah Wartell, The Urban Institute. With introductory remarks by Diana Lind, Next City; and Andrew Plepler, Bank of America.

The event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required; walk-in registration based on availability. Please RSVP here.
