Hybrid Event: Closing the Gap: Barriers and Solutions for Equitable Homeownership – Oct 4

Posted by Urban Institute on October 3, 2023

A landscape analysis of the racial homeownership gap indicates that households of color have lower homeownership rates than white households. And although the reasons behind these racial disparities vary, they are often attributable to differences in households’ access to financial resources and persistent racial discrimination.

Join the Urban Institute and Living Cities for a convening exploring how homeownership can be a path toward a more equitable future. This event will connect local and federal government leaders to discuss systemic inequity in homeownership for people of color and innovative solutions at all levels to close these persistent homeownership gaps. We will feature local homeownership initiatives being implemented by cities in the Closing the Gaps’ Year of Reckoning Cohort and racial equity plans being implemented by federal agencies. This event will also highlight opportunities where the federal government can work even more closely with stakeholders seeking to change their local communities. We expect this event will build on the work already being done to harness all the resources available to close the racial homeownership gap and boost wealth for people and communities of color.

Date and Time: Wednesday, October 4, 2023, 2:00-5:00 PM
