Promoting Inclusive Urban Growth: A Call To Action

Bush Center Originally Posted: Feb. 5, 2019 Many U.S. cities face growing challenges in building economies in which each generation lives better than the one before. A significant part of the challenge is rooted in home affordability, as lower- and middle-income people increasingly can’t afford to live in high-opportunity areas and are seeing more of their income consumed by housing costs.
