7.3 million – that’s the number of units that the country has underproduced from 2000-2015 according to research from Up for Growth. This podcast focuses on the general shortage of affordable housing as well as of housing units overall and looks at some of the challenges that make it so hard to close that supply gap. Mike Kingsella from Up for Growth joins Steve and Corey to dive into these topics and discuss Up for Growth’s new tool, the Seattle Housing Policy and Affordability Calculator.
