We’re talking about housing for four weeks, thanks to the support of the RWJF! In the last episode, we introduced you to the pathways by which we might think about improving housing for low-income individuals. Today we’re going to get specific.
One policy which focuses on affordability is the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit. TR Goldman wrote a great policy brief about it in Health Affairs. It’s also the topic of this week’s HCT.
