Virtual Session #8: Housing Instability + Solutions Needed

Date: Thursday, September 9, 2021 @ 1:00-2:00PM

Overview: In many counties and municipalities in South Carolina, there is a critical shortage of decent, safe, and affordable residential housing available to low- and moderate-income families. The affordable housing shortage constitutes a danger to the health, safety, and welfare of residents of the state, and is a barrier to sound growth and sustainable economic development for South Carolina counties and municipalities. Affordable housing can include multifamily rental, single-family rental, and single-family homeownership, providing more opportunities to assist families with financial and social sustainability.

Session will discuss:

  • Key impacts to residential instability and substandard housing
  • Challenges to affordable housing in South Carolina
  • Policies, partnerships, and funding needed to improve housing and increase affordable housing stock in the state

Speaker: Bernie Mazyck, South Carolina Association for Community Economic Development (SCACED)

Featuring Special Guest, Representative Ivory Torrey Thigpen

South Carolina House of Representatives, (District 79 - Richland County)
