The Role of "Filtering" in Housing Affordability
Traditionally, the majority of housing affordable to many families has come through “filtering” – as apartment homes grow older, they gradually become part of the “naturally occurring affordable housing.”

This webinar features Dr. Dowell Myers of the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California summarizing his recently completed research for NMHC’s Research Foundation that explains the causes and consequences of this change.
