Memphis is in the midst of a crisis which calls for unprecedented levels of collaboration and communication. To answer this call and to facilitate the hard but necessary conversations throughout the Memphis housing and community development field, the City of Memphis Division of Housing and Community Development (HCD) in partnership with Innovate Memphis, has put together the first housing report of its kind: 2020 State of Memphis Housing: Rising to Respond to Crisis.
The City has changed dramatically over the past 50 years, with an increased geography, persistent residential segregation, and a shift from ownership to rental in many neighborhoods.
There are similarities and differences between the 2008 housing crisis and the current COVID-19 pandemic, but we can use lessons learned to identify successful interventions that will help with the future recovery.
The City has taken a significant step forward through Memphis 3.0 to assess existing conditions and leverage this information for neighborhood revitalization, including the realm of housing.
The 2020 Memphis State of Housing Summit will be held virtually Thursday, October 29th 2020. For more information on the speakers, panels, and resources visit http://memphishcd.org/summit/
