What are the new responsibilities that tenants and landlords have in the post-COVID world? With the pending federal funds for the recovery and infrastructure upgrading, it will be the job of policy-makers to understand and respond to this question through the lens of health and equity. The history of housing policy in the U.S. prevented Black communities from owning homes and developing wealth, which in turn compounded the devastating public health and economic effects of the pandemic.
In this free webinar/ workshop, our two panelists will explore:
1. The intersection between housing and public healthcare, and the socio-economic determinants of both.
2. A case study of the history of housing and community development in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and what we can learn from programs being implemented on the ground by the people working on them.
3. How creating Health Secure Housing in historically underinvested communities can be a cornerstone of recovery, poverty reduction, and community empowerment.
The event will feature time for audience Q&A and discussion, and we will be posting a list of resources to help deepen the knowledge and discussion arising in the webinar.
