Briefing on HUD’s Worst Case Housing Needs Report

This event has passed.

HUD has been reporting to Congress on Worst Case Housing Needs since the 1980s, providing national data on the need for affordable housing and analyzing the critical problems facing low-income renter households. The report is an authoritative, comprehensive look at key developments, informing policymakers on how best to address the housing needs of vulnerable Americans across the nation. Importantly, this year’s report, using data collected before the pandemic, provides new evidence on the persistent shortage of affordable housing heading into, and likely worsened by the effects of, the pandemic.

We hope you will join BPC’s J. Ronald Terwilliger Center for Housing Policy as it hosts senior HUD officials and leading experts for a discussion on this year’s report, its key findings, and its policy implications.
