Applying an Equitable Framework for Housing Policy Response during COVID-19 and Beyond
Housing is a foundation for economic mobility and opportunity, but many Americans struggle to afford a place to live. And racist policies and practices—historical and ongoing—have created entrenched inequities in access to homeownership, quality housing, and resource-rich neighborhoods. The COVID-19 pandemic has made these problems worse. Past crises like Hurricane Katrina and the mortgage crisis and subsequent Great Recession offer us crucial lessons. In the face of the pandemic-related housing crisis, policymakers can do more than craft policies that return households to a prepandemic status quo. Instead, they can embrace economic mobility and racial equity as their goals.
