On Thursday, June 14 from 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm, the National League of Cities will be hosting a webinar to discuss a Housing and Transportation Affordability Index developed by the Center for Neighborhood Technology.
The index calculates housing affordability not just in terms of housing costs but also considering the transportation costs associated with a home’s location. The tool has been used to impact development decisions in regions across the country in a variety of applications ranging from public engagement, to the siting of affordable housing, to the selection of corridor alignments for public transit, to garnering support for passenger rail, to the formation of special-purpose funds to finance transit-oriented development.
The webinar will share the methodology of the development of the tool and several replicable ways it has been used in municipalities across the U.S.
Registration for the webinar can be found here.
