“Building an Inclusive City: Affordable Housing in the District of Columbia”
Washington, DC, is a world-class, prospering city. However, housing challenges are clouding its future and keeping some citizens from enjoying its new prosperity. The city’s population has grown dramatically over the past 15 years, increasing the demand for housing. To keep up, the city needs to build more housing and preserve existing affordable housing. Mr. Tatian will present the latest data compiled by the Urban Institute and NeighborhoodInfo DC, quantifying the need for affordable housing in the District. He will also discuss the policy options available to help the city meet this challenge.
Peter A. Tatian is a Senior Fellow in the Urban Institute’s Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center. His areas of interest include housing policy, neighborhood indicators, and community development. Mr. Tatian is currently leading NeighborhoodInfo DC, a neighborhood data system and civic engagement tool for the District of Columbia that is part of the Institute’s National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership. He also heads the Institute’s work providing technical assistance on data collection and use to grantees of the the US Department of Education’s Promise Neighborhoods initiative.
