2011 Policy Summit
Housing, Human Capital, and Inequality
June 9-10, 2011
No community has gone unscathed by the housing crisis and recent recession. However, low– and moderate–income communities have been disproportionately impacted by the housing market and economic crisis, further deepening the divide between the haves and the have–nots. Income inequality in this country is at an all–time high, and is among the highest in the developed world. In this environment, it is critical to revisit education and asset building policies, through the lenses of research and practice, that will support stability and upward mobility in poor communities.
Join elected officials, researchers, practitioners, bankers, funders, and policymakers from across the Midwest, to discuss the latest research on and best practices in housing mobility, education policies, and stable, sustainable communities.
Sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland's Research and Community Development Departments, with support from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH), and NeighborWorks America.
