We've extensively covered affordable housing challenges in our podcast series by looking at the data and talking with researchers, lenders, local experts and government entities, but there is one critical behind-the-scenes resource that brings all of this together: the lawyer. In this episode, Steve and Corey are joined by Toger Swanson, partner at Kutak Rock LLP, a real estate and public finance law firm. Together they discuss challenges and recent initiatives to address affordability issues, all from a legal perspective.
