March 08, 2013

On March 7, students, alumni and members of the community joined the conversation during the George Washington University's Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration 2013 Policy Forum: Serving Low-Income Neighborhoods.

Forum panelists were:                 

  • Maurice Jones, Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • Mark Calabria, Director of Financial Regulation Studies, Cato Institute
  • Lisa Hall, President & CEO, Calvert Foundation
  • Joseph McNeely, Executive Director, Central Baltimore Partnership

The Forum was moderated by Joseph Firschein, Deputy Associate Director and Community Affairs Officer at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and professor, Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration.

The foreclosure crisis garnered substantial attention in recent years and remains in the headlines. But more work remains as low-income communities continue to struggle and recover from the crisis. The Forum’s discussion offered diverse opinions on the current state of community development policy in the U.S. and potential policy developments over the next four years.
