Georgia Housing Summit: Innovating the Way to Affordability

Everyone knows housing prices are out of reach for many Georgia families, but there are few agreed-upon solutions. Join the Georgia Public Policy Foundation as we explore new approaches to harness innovation and entrepreneurship, and ensure housing is attainable for all Georgians. 

The conversations will include:

Where are we and how did we get there? Our experts explain the numbers and trends behind Georgia’s soaring housing costs. 

Policy Innovation: State and local officials examine the issues and discuss the current challenges and opportunities. 

Neighborly Innovation: Panelists from the AEI Housing Center and PadSplit offer ideas on how we can create more housing without disrupting the neighborhoods we know and love. 

Lending Innovation: Panelists from financial institutions discuss how markets can provide more capital for both single-family and multifamily housing development.

Building Innovation: Panelists from the home building industry explore how new materials and methods can expand our housing stock.

Confirmed panelists include:

– Rep. Dale Washburn

– Rep. Spencer Frye

– Woodstock Mayor Michael Caldwell

– Gwinnett County Chairwoman Nicole Hendrickson

– Decatur Mayor Patti Garrett

– Newnan Councilwoman Cynthia Jenkins
