Solutions for Mitigating Neighborhood Blight: Program and Policy Strategies to Promote Community Revitalization

Location: Salon VI
Date: Thu, June 1
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

The goal of the session is to discuss the negative impact that blight – whether it be abandoned buildings, houses in severe disrepair, or vacant homes – has on communities in need. In order to promote the revitalization of these problem areas and help the residents of those affected neighborhoods, policies like a tax credit for single family development/rehab are needed. This session will explore programs and policy proposals to ensure the economic vitality of neighborhoods currently in distress.
