Housing Policy

Winter 2017 quarter

Taught by

political economy, community development and planning

This course explores the historical evolution of federal, state and local housing policy. Students will learn about how analytical and political frameworks are used to create, evaluate and shape housing programs, projects and services. We will examine the continuum of subsidies and programs that are provided to everyone from high income earners and investors to people who are chronically homeless. We will compare and contrast how different housing policies are used to provide shelter, stimulate the economy, protect the environment and support sustainable growth.
