The Spatial Dilemma of Sustainable Transportation and Just Affordable Housing – UCLA Housing, Neighborhood and Health Seminar Series

January 24, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Presented by Paul M. Ong
Research Professor, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs
Director, UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge

California’s intense affordable housing crisis has highlighted the fundamental linkage between land use, transportation, climate policy, and equity. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the main contributor to climate change, is a priority policy goal for the state of California, and cutting vehicle miles traveled (VMT) is a key mechanism for achieving this goal. In order to equitably achieve this reduction, it is critical that affordable housing options be situated in areas that facilitate less driving, through reliable access to public transit, walkability, and proximity to employment. These elements, among others, can combine to create more sustainable communities.

We hope you can join us for this research seminar where Dr. Ong will discuss his project that examines the spatial distribution of tenant-based Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) units and Low-income Housing Tax Credit units to understand whether geographic patterns and trends are consistent with climate change and equity goals.
