  Experts: Collaboration Key to Solving Housing Crisis  

Though the current housing crisis was decades in the making, all levels of government and the private sector can work together now to ease the burden on consumers and increase housing availability, affordability, and accessibility. This was the message Tuesday from experts during a webinar hosted by national think tank Third Way called "A Look Ahead: Fixing the Housing Crisis."

Chronic underbuilding has contributed to housing supply issues across the board. Affordable housing is especially scarce, putting greater strain on moderate-income and first-time home buyers. Housing production is 4 million to 5 million units below where it needs to be to meet demand, said Erika Poethig, special assistant to President Joe Biden for housing and urban policy. 

Supply chain and labor issues have played a part in building woes in recent years, said Poethig, but a lack of land is perhaps an even greater stumbling block. State and local governments can work to address zoning and land-use issues in their own backyards, she said, and the Biden administration is working to incentivize inclusionary zoning and land use that promotes higher-density housing. "Land use and zoning reform is essential to boost safe, affordable housing supply," said Poethig. Click here to read the full article.
