Building Communities and Reducing Construction Costs: Insights from the Center’s 2019 Gramlich Fellows

Location: One Bow St, 4th Floor

Margaret Haltom and Hannah Hoyt will discuss the work they carried out as 2019 Gramlich Fellows in Community and Economic Development. Haltom will present “Empowering Resident Leaders: Lessons from NeighborWorks America’s Community Leadership Institute,” which will be published later this year as a Joint Center for Housing Studies/NeighborWorks America working paper. Hoyt will discuss “More for Less? An Inquiry into Design and Construction Strategies for Addressing Multifamily Housing Costs,” which also will be published as a working paper.

The Gramlich Fellowship in Community and Economic Development, which is co-sponsored by the Center and NeighborWorks America, gives Harvard graduate students the opportunity to identify, research, publish, and present promising approaches for addressing challenges related to affordable housing and community development. Fellows carry out this work independently but in close consultation with staff at both NeighborWorks and the Center.
