Building a More Resilient Housing System

March 2018 Event Report

Jun 26, 2018

In February 2017, the Kinder Institute for Urban Research at Rice University, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), and CSH partnered to host a conversation about the state of housing in Houston and Harris County. That event spun out many ideas and possible actions geared towards improving the region’s approach to housing and making a system that could serve every resident. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the convening partners saw a need to continue that conversation. On March 27, 2018, we organized a conversation titled “Building a More Resilient Housing System.” The event, which was sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co., brought more than 200 people together to discuss how the region’s housing system connects to post-disaster recovery and long-term resilience efforts.
