August 18: Session Five
11:00 – Welcome and Overview
Kyle Wingfield, President and CEO, Georgia Public Policy Foundation11:05 -12:15 – Affordable Housing or Housing Affordability? When housing advocates ask about affordable housing, they often look to government for the answer. And government is usually happy to step up. But is a government response the best solution, or are there better options? Is there an opportunity to adapt the approach to alternatives that reduce the role of government and engage the private sector? Think tank and private-sector experts discuss the approaches that can enhance access to housing for Georgians. Moderator: Sheila Brower, Past President, Georgia Association of Realtors
