Housing and Opportunity in the Baltimore Region: A Briefing on the Thompson Case and Beyond

Wednesday, February 28, 2007
8:15 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.


The Annie E. Casey Foundation
701 St. Paul Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
Fifth Floor Conference Room

Housing and opportunity are increasingly central to the region’s future. A housing deficit of 20,000 units is projected for the Baltimore Region in 2010, and 100,000 by 2030. The current regional housing market is not addressing the particular need for affordable housing, operating much like a car dealership with only luxury cars and no mid-priced sedan despite a strong demand for them. Meanwhile, there is great opportunity in the region, but it is not geographically accessible to many people who could benefit from it. O ur region remains one of the most economically and racially segregated regions in the country, which has consequences on the well-being of low-income, as well as middle and high-income families.
