Creating The Urban Dream: Tackling The Affordable Housing Crisis With Compassion

Publication Date: April 2020

For generations, homeownership has been an avenue to a better life. But discriminatory policies left many people out, and today’s trend of rising home prices continues to put housing beyond the reach of significant sectors of the workforce. This is particularly true in America’s urban centers, where a shortage of affordable housing is stifling social and economic mobility.

We must face this problem with a balance of compassion and competence. The solution will require the efforts of many―including the public sector, private developers, financial institutions, and community leaders―all working together to find creative solutions rather than relying on the policies of the past.

In Creating the Urban Dream, Clay Grubb shares the strategic focus of his decades-long career: how to provide good homes for the many people who need them and create dynamic neighborhoods where they can better their lives. Investing in the future through secure, affordable housing will be our country’s challenge for many years to come―and a huge opportunity for those who will join in helping to solve it.
