Episode Description

We kick off Season 2 of The Greater Good with a conversation about affordable housing and community economic development. We start by defining both of these terms and then delve into their history in the U.S., the current housing shortage, proposed law and policy changes, and the link to environmental sustainability. Our guests are Greg Payne of the Maine Affordable Housing Coalition and Avesta Housing; Professor Peter Pitegoff of the University of Maine School of Law; and Nina Ciffolillo, the Economic Justice Fellow for the Class of 2021 at the University of Maine School of Law.
