What will the Trump Administration and Congress do about the unmet need for affordable housing in our country?  At this forum, we’ll hear from national experts about what they predict will happen, and we’ll hear reactions from New England speakers about what the impact will be on our states.  We’ll also consider what we can do proactively to encourage a robust federal affordable housing agenda as we begin 2017.
