Homeless to Housed: Defining the Value & Impact of Deeply Affordable Housing

2:00pm – 3:15pm
Hilton Austin, Governor's Salon E, Floor 4

Contrary to popular belief, deeply affordable housing aimed at addressing the needs of unhoused individuals and families can yield positive returns on investment (ROI). This session will explore the value and impact of permanent supportive housing (PSH). A panel of experts will discuss the costs and benefits of PSH, as well as the return on investment for both individual investors and society as a whole. Additionally, the panelists will share best practices and innovative financing strategies for developing housing that effectively address the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors. This session is presented by ULI’s Homeless to Housed Initiative.
