U.S. President Joe Biden pledged to pursue a comprehensive plan to end homelessness and his administration has made affordable housing a top priority, proposing measures to ease rental prices and improve financing opportunities for home construction and purchases. Underlying these policy proposals is the commitment to a fundamental principle, as articulated by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia L. Fudge, that “Justice in housing is everyone realizing the fundamental truth: housing is a human right.”
In this event, HUD Deputy Secretary Adrianne Todman will expand on the administration’s work for making that vision a reality. Deputy Secretary Todman will deliver brief remarks and then join Professor Elisa Massimino in a conversation.
