Ingrid Gould Ellen Speaks at “HUD at 50” Event to Commemorate HUD’s 50th Anniversary

News & Events | January 29th 2016

In January, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development commemorated their 50th anniversary with an event that explored how HUD’s policies have evolved and the direction they may take moving forward.  

Two panel discussions explored the key themes in HUD at 50: Creating Pathways and Opportunities—a book that was released in commemoration of HUD’s 50th anniversary, which included race and poverty; the rise, fall, and rebirth of cities; and how HUD’s works serves vulnerable populations.

NYU Furman Center Faculty Director Ingrid Gould Ellen participated in a panel discussion that explored evolution of HUD’s policies and programs. She discussed themes in her chapter (which was co-authored with NYU Furman Center Executive Director Jessica Yager), including race, poverty, and federal rental housing policy.

Other panel discussants included:

  • Erika Poething (Moderator), Fellow and Director of Urban Policy Initiatives at the Urban Institute;
  • Raphael Bostic, Judith and John Bedrosian Chair in Governance and the Public Enterprise at the University of Southern California’s Price School of Public Policy; and
  • Margery Turner, Senior Vice President for Program Planning and Management at the Urban Institute.
