In order to create the affordable housing of the future, a healthy built environment that works for all, our industry must incorporate innovation where construction, demographics, and government action meet. Construction including modular housing, 3-D printed housing, tiny houses—each of these tantalizing concepts represents a glimpse into the future of affordable housing. Demographically, U.S. population shifts—from the aging of Baby Boomers and Millennials to the influx of Generations Y and Z—bring new challenges in home design requirements and affordability. Finally, the constant threat to the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and other housing finance programs sharpens our awareness of the vital role government policy and elected officials play.

This year’s Symposium asks all of us in the affordable housing industry to let our imaginations run free and explore the possibility of a future with abundant, resilient housing that is affordable to people at all income levels and appropriate to where they are in their lives. What else will this housing comprise? Build-to-rent single-family homes? “Missing middle” fourplexes and cottages? Amenity-laden “smart” apartments? The answer is probably yes to all, plus a number of innovations we haven’t yet imagined. The Symposium is an evening of lively discourse and expert opinion to help affordable housers draw up blueprints for a future filled with sustainable, inventive housing for generations to come.
