Finding affordable housing is a struggle many Americans face, and the number of people coping with this challenge is growing. Housing, the cornerstone of the American dream, determines a sense of "home" and community. It also affects quality of life, access to health care, transportation, other vital services and the ability to age gracefully and independently. Is there enough public awareness about this growing critical need? Who is championing the demand for more affordable housing and what solutions are now part of public dialogue?
The Atlantic will convene a public forum to discuss whether a new kind of housing bubble is starting to simmer and what options are emerging to address this growing urgency for many Americans.
