Homeownership remains the key means that most American families build and retain wealth. Since the Great Recession, a false narrative has remained resilient that low- and moderate-income homeowners and the programs designed to facilitate homeownership caused the foreclosure crisis. This session will use on the ground examples of innovative strategies to advance and sustain homeownership to highlight policy and programmatic solutions from Michigan and across the country. We will explore the use of manufactured homes, land banking and other approaches to reducing the costs and barriers to homeownership.
