blue houseJoin us Thursday, October 6, from 7:30-10:00 a.m. for the free SAVI Talks! presentation, “The Changing Affordable Housing Market.” Hosted by WFYI, 1630 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46202, this free event features an analysis of affordable housing issues in Central Indiana and will help organizations and communities better understand the market so they can impact community development policy and service provision. Specifically, the program will:

  • Touch upon the difference between subsidized housing and the far broader notion of housing affordability
  • Address how broader market forces impact affordability
  • Discuss how the squeeze on affordability impacts families and households beyond housing

John Marron, former Senior Policy Analyst, Public Policy Institute (PPI), will share the findings from a new report published by SAVI and The Polis Center at IUPUI on the current affordable housing market; Christie Gillespie, Vice President, Community Impact, United Way of Central Indiana (UWCI), will address the implications of housing choices for our community; and Gail Strong, Vice President, Community Engagement, WFYI, will facilitate reflection and discussion among event participants.

A light buffet breakfast is available starting at 7:30 a.m., followed by the program at 8:00 a.m.
