Overview

This final plenary session is jointly sponsored with the ABA Forum on Affordable Housing and Community Development Law. This panel includes leaders from the Housing Authority of Baltimore City, the State of Maryland, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The panel discussion will cover initiatives and challenges to implementing regional and multi-dimensional approaches at the local, state and Federal levels to revitalize Baltimore’s neighborhoods. As in communities across the United States, in the face of decades of neighborhood disinvestment, questions to be addressed include: what regional strategies are available to move residents to communities of opportunity while also rebuilding areas that are lagging behind? What legal tools are available in this overall effort and what Fair Housing and other legal parameters impact how projects are conceived and the funding sources that are made available to them?
