Panel Discussions:

New Developments in Fair Housing Law and Policy

The recent Supreme Court decision on disparate impact and HUD's new regulation defining what communities should do to affirmatively further fair housing are creating both excitement around a renewed federal commitment and uncertainty about what rights and obligations states, localities, and other housing stakeholders have. The Court and HUD have stated that communities must make both investments to revitalize communities and policy changes to encourage mobility to opportunity. Experts will discuss how fair housing policy and law will affect how communities make new investments in revitalization and encourage mobility to areas of opportunity.

What's Fair in New York?

Government policy makers and affordable housing practitioners discuss federal policies and local impact relating to recent Supreme Court ruling and HUD policies including Difficult to Develop Areas, Small Area Fair Market Rents and Community Preference.
