With this incubator, the Urban Institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center hopes to nurture a fresh, open-minded look at the future of the housing finance system.
On this page, you will find short essays about the future of housing finance reform from authors who hold a wide spectrum of views. By inviting thoughtful people outside the Housing Finance Policy Center to join us in open-minded rethinking, we embrace the importance of open dialogue, listening to each other, and the opportunity to learn from others’ experiences.
These essays address the future housing finance system postconservatorship and explain how the authors think we could get there. The authors also address how the system they envision will serve underserved communities and households.
When the series concludes, the essays and concluding remarks will be compiled in a single document.
By bringing thoughtful voices together in a single forum, we hope to expand the debate and pave the way for new ideas. We look forward to a compelling and game-changing discussion.
