The Storm after the Calm: The Profound Implications of COVID-19 for U.S. Housing Policy

Jeffrey Lubell, J.D.

White Paper

April 22, 2020

In this white paper, Abt’s Jeffrey Lubell explores the potential implications of COVID-19 for housing policy and practice. The paper includes sections on homelessness, renters, homeowners, the home buying and selling process, the operation of multifamily housing, the creation of new housing, displacement and other issues. As Lubell discusses, the broad implications of COVID-19 for housing are important to consider as policymakers and practitioners work to develop short-, medium-, and long-term responses to the crisis.
