Location: Zoom

Speaker(s): Alexander Hermann

Renter households have been disproportionately harmed by the financial fallout of the pandemic and this distress was concentrated at the neighborhood level, according to “The Geography of Renter Financial Distress and Housing Insecurity During the Pandemic,” a paper published as part of the Housing Crisis Research Collaborative.
