MORE ABOUT NAHB’s EFFORTS:

In 2020, NAHB’s Land Development Committee created a Structural Inequities Working Group to study ways local government policies have created structural disparities in housing opportunity based on race and ethnicity. Part of the working group’s focus is to provide education to NAHB members. Thus, this webinar is geared towards all NAHB members, particularly those engaged in advancing housing policy with state and local officials. It is also geared towards land use and housing legal practitioners.

 

NAHB’s Land Development Committee and NAHB’s Legal Action Network for Development Strategies (LANDS) are proud to co-sponsor this event.
