As the U.S. housing crisis grows even more urgent due to the COVID-19 pandemic, key stakeholders can support housing strategies that help ensure everyone has access to an affordable place to live.

Join us on March 25 at 2 p.m. EST for “Closing the Gap: Removing Barriers to Create More Affordable Housing,” where we'll discuss ways the affordable housing industry can innovate to increase affordable rental housing opportunities.

Referencing findings from upcoming Capital One-sponsored research from the Terner Center at UC Berkeley, we'll explore the challenges, complexities, and opportunities in financing Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) developments in the United States.
