Making rent and paying the mortgage; How can we avoid another housing crisis?
Together, MassINC and The MassINC Polling bring you a new Zoom forum series, Probing New Public Opinion Data for an Informed Response.

Using data provided by The MassINC Polling Group, these forums are an opportunity to better understand the housing challenges Commonwealth residents are fielding right now, and explore public policy solutions to address them.

The first of the summer series, How do We Avoid Another Foreclosure Crisis?, will take stock of how Massachusetts residents are covering their rent with data from a statewide survey of renters and homeowners. Using this real time data juxtaposed with lessons from the past, we will explore the consequences of coronavirus on renters and take stock of ongoing and potential policy solutions.

Agenda:
Introductions & Welcomes - Juana Matias, COO of MassINC

Presentation of Data - Steve Koczela, president of The MassINC Polling Group

Gateway City and Policy Implications - Ben Forman, MassINC director of research

What's Next? - A discussion between Ben, Juana Steve, framing the discussion in light of recent housing policy developments, and lessons from 2008.

The housing poll was funded by:
-MassINC and The MassINC Polling Group
-Beacon Communities
-The Boston Foundation (TBF)
-The Community Builders
-Citizen’s Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA)
-Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH)
