The NALHFA Affordable Housing Podcast highlights new and innovative affordable housing finance solutions by bringing together the nation’s leading housing finance experts, thought leaders, and decision makers.


There is no city, county, or state in the entire country where a minimum wage worker can find safe and acceptable affordable housing options. The affordable housing crisis has led to the shortage of over 7.2 million affordable rental homes available to low income families. NALHFA’s Affordable Housing Podcast will explore the reasons behind the housing crisis and how the industry can unite together to discover creative solutions to provide more affordable housing options across the country.

 

New episodes will be released monthly on the third Wednesday of every month. Subscribe on Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, or SoundCloud so you don't miss an episode!
