Building Capacity for Equitable Implementation of Housing Policies

Healthy Neighborhoods

How can government agencies use innovative partnerships and programs to build community trust, improve access to justice, and maximize the impact of limited resources? 

In this webinar, panelists discuss promising strategies to build capacity for equitable implementation of housing policies across various levels of government:

  • Efforts to leverage federal resources to address regional concerns
  • State programs to improve implementation through partnerships with government agencies and community-based organizations — including an innovative right-to-counsel program
  • Use of law school clinics to promote access to justice for under-resourced communities

This is the third and final episode in our series Equitable Implementation of Healthy Housing Policies, which illustrates how an equitable implementation framework can be used across key issue areas to promote access to safe, stable, and affordable housing.
