Latino Homeownership after the Collapse: Mitigating foreclosures and Wealth Loss in our Hardest Hit Communities
Moderated by CHCI Housing Graduate Fellow Janel Gomez
Read the White Paper: 2012 Housing Graduate Summit White Paper-Janel Gomez
The Latino community has been disproportionally affected by the foreclosure crisis and have lost 60 percent of its wealth since the housing crisis began. As foreclosure mitigation programs are ramped up, including expenditure of $25 billion in Mortgage Settlement Funds, it is vital to address the needs of our hardest hit communities and communities of color.
Join CHCI Housing Graduate Fellow Janel Gomez as she leads a discussion on how foreclosure mitigation efforts can address devastating effect on homeownership and wealth loss in Latino Communities.
