Participate in Fed Webinar on Gentrification and Displacement

Gentrification and displacement are growing concerns in community development and urban revitalization. Cities are in a period of resurgence, gaining renewed interest from people who want to live and work in urban centers. This has resulted in gentrification pressures in a number of low- and moderate-income (LMI) neighborhoods that are in or near city centers and core business districts and historically have had modest property values.

In this webinar, participants will hear about emerging research on gentrification that explores how it is being defined, its causes, and its impacts on vulnerable residents. In addition, practitioners will discuss practical solutions for addressing the effects of gentrification and displacement on LMI households. Presenters will discuss how they have promoted the use of equitable and inclusive development policies and practices to support commercial, residential, and transit growth and community revitalization.

Ingrid Gould Ellen of the New York University Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy, Harry Smith of Dudley Neighbors Inc. of Boston, and John Chin of the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation will present during the webinar.
