Conference on Low-Income Housing Supply and Housing Affordability
Alrov Institute for Real Estate Research at Tel Aviv University, ESCP Business School, and the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate are jointly organizing a second conference on issues of low-income housing supply, related financing tools, and housing affordability. The study of these issues has taken on further importance in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The selection committee is interested in economics and policy research on topics including housing affordability, inequality, house price and rent dynamics, rent control, low-income housing supply and demand, private-public partnerships including (but not limited to) the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) programs, mortgage and housing finance system design and performance to support affordable housing, land use regulation and entitlements, demographic factors, homelessness, urban stratification, population mobility and immigration, and policy at all levels of government. The conference will be held at Tel Aviv University campus (Israel) on June 14-15, 2022. A day-trip to major historic sites in the Old City of Jerusalem is planned for June 16, 2022. A follow-up academic meeting is planned for UCLA in June 2023.

Authors of accepted papers will be notified by April 1, 2022. The conference sponsors will pay up to 3-day lodging expenses for one author of each accepted paper.
