Contemporary U.S. federalism has increased states’ policy responsibilities and is likely to continue doing so under the current national administration.  In the domain of affordable housing, states have filled a void left by federal shifts by developing their own laws, policies, and programs, including directives to local governments aimed at increasing affordable housing production. Differences across states suggest variation in the level of support states will provide toward affordable housing. Professor Basolo examines the forces moving housing policy leadership to the states as well as the various forms of funding and actions to increase housing by states. The discussion will help reveal the structure of housing support among the states and encourage a dialogue about the relative importance of state housing planning and regulation for affordable housing, especially in California. 

Victoria Basolo is a Professor in the Department of Urban Planning and Public Policy at the Basolo PicUniversity of California, Irvine. Many years ago, she left a professional career as a redevelopment project manager for local governments to pursue a Ph.D. and conduct housing research. Her research investigates the economic, political, and social forces impacting the production and quality of housing. She has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals including: Journal of Urban Affairs, Housing Policy Debate, the American Journal of Public Health, Housing Studies, Urban Studies, Housing, Theory, and Society. Her current work focuses on state housing policies and policy preferences expressed through the qualified allocation plans associated with the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
