An Affordable Housing Community Solutions Podcast
Hosted by Quadel President Katie Goar in Partnership with ForbesBooks Radio
Every Tuesday, 2pm EST
We need more affordable housing in the U.S.—that much we can agree on. But, how do we get there?
Join Quadel President Katie Goar each week as she talks with finance experts, policy makers, thought leaders, and community organizers to discuss how to create more affordable housing—and more opportunity—for people across the country.
Interested in economic development? Government funding? Why affordable housing makes good economic policy or how it benefits communities? Subscribe and listen each Tuesday on ForbesBooks Radio or wherever you get your podcasts.
