It feels like our world has never faced so many crisis all at the same time, and trying to solve them at once seems impossible. But, in 2015, the United Nations came together to develop a list of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, a blueprint for addressing all of humanity's problems—from poverty to climate change to peace and justice. And, amazingly, every UN nation signed it. So, how is it going? On this episode, we talk with Chris Williams, the director of UN Habitat; and Prof. Luis Bettencourt, director of the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation at the University of Chicago, to get some insight on how they've been studying and working on these goals, as well as their perspective on the current state of our global crisis moving forward.

Housing Minister on Mayors' issues with new density rules

The Minister of Housing is downplaying the suggestion Mayors were blindsided by new densification rules. National and the government teamed-up to slash red tape by August 2022, with the aim of making it easier and cheaper to build new homes. Complaints from local government include feeling blindsided by the announcement and worries about what areas will be intensified. Auckland's Mayor Phil Goff says the $3.8 billion the Government has committed through the Housing Acceleration Fund is not enough. "With the rate of growth that we've got and the cost of infrastructure, particularly with construction inflation, and all of the challenges that goes with that, we need a whole lot more money to be able to create the infrastructure to maximize the level of housing construction." Woods told Morning Report there was plenty of money going into infrastructure outside of the Housing Acceleration Fund. "Housing infrastructure is just a fancy name for roads and pipes. If you think about all the money that's gone in, we put money in through the shovel ready projects into housing infrastructure, $460 million there, there's been $6.8 billion for transport go in through NZ Up. Then, of course, there the $2.5 billion that sits within the three waters. "What we have to do is make sure that we're getting the best value for this infrastructure as it goes in, in terms of the number of houses we're getting and the fact that we can actually start building the types of houses that are more affordable for people." She also added councils affected by the rules would have already been working on intensification. "What this is doing is bringing forward the National Policy Statement on Urban Development by a year. "That is certainly something that the tier one councils have already started having to do the preparatory work on to do their accounting for how many houses are going to be needed for the projected growth in their areas. "This is all work that was underway, and actually some of the concerns that they had, which was where they were having to balance accessibility and demand in terms of the most enabling path and we've streamlined that."

In this episode, Professor of Economics Dr. Bree Lang talks with students from the UC Riverside School of Public Policy about Low-Income Housing and the Housing Crisis. About Bree Lang: Bree Lang is an economics professor at the University of California, Riverside. Her research areas include urban economics, taxation, subsidized housing, and public finance. Learn more about Bree Lang via https://sites.google.com/site/breejoneslang/ Podcast Highlights: “The US Department of Housing and Urban Development defines affordability as someone who is spending 30 percent or less of their income on housing. And if you look in California in particular, in the mid-2010s, 80 percent of households were spending more than 30 percent of their income on housing. In the mid-2000s, 30% of people were spending over 50% of their income on rent.” - Bree Lang on the severity of the housing crisis and its effect on families. “If I want to be optimistic for just one moment, I think that COVID has also shined a light on a lot of these root problems where we are talking about kind of this inequality and upward mobility. I think that we're more likely to be having conversations about those big picture issues.” - Bree Lang on the topic of COVID-19 and its impact on the discussion surrounding the housing crisis. “I think it's important to be open-minded about these things and to be willing to listen to people so that we can come to a solution that's going to work for everybody.” - Bree Lang on the topic of solving the housing crisis.

WWNO/WRKF Lead Coastal Reporter Tegan Wendlandaided an NPR investigation into the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development's sales of homes in flood-prone areas to unsuspecting citizens seeking affordable housing. The investigation found that HUD disproportionately sold more houses built in official flood zones compared to houses on high ground in multiple states, and that over 20% of the homes that HUD sold in Louisiana between 2017 and 2020 were located in official flood zones. WWNO/WRKF reporter Rich Webstertells us about the damage he saw in Louisiana's bayou communities while reporting on the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.

The eviction moratorium roller coaster continues. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the moratorium, saying: “it is up to Congress, not the CDC, to decide whether the public interest merits further action here.” And now, three federal agencies are asking state and local governments to implement eviction moratoriums or extend the ones they currently have.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.The Supreme Court issued an eight-page ruling on August 26th. (1) Realtor associations and landlords in Alabama and Georgia had sued, saying the CDC had gone beyond the reach of its authority.Scotus Rules Against MoratoriumIn the ruling, the justices said: “The moratorium has put the applicants, along with millions of landlords across the country, at risk of irreparable harm by depriving them of rent payments with no guarantee of eventual recovery. Despite the CDC's determination that landlords should bear a significant financial cost of the pandemic, many landlords have modest means. And preventing them from evicting tenants who breach their leases intrudes on one of the most fundamental elements of property ownership—the right to exclude.” (2)But they went beyond that saying that rental assistance funding has been made available but very little of it has been distributed. So what's the problem? According to the ruling: “The Government has had three additional months to distribute rental-assistance funds to help ease the transition away from the moratorium.” Congress has also had time to put together new legislation, but has failed to do so. And now the moratorium is set to expire on October 3rd.Where Are the Rental Relief Funds?Why have emergency rental funds not already been distributed as landlords suffer the brunt of the moratorium? We reached out to Director of Business Intelligence, Doug Ressler, at Yardi Matrix about the delay. He told us:“In most of the country: As of Aug. 26, state and local programs had (received) a little more than $5 billion of more than $46 billion in federal rent relief money out the door. Only about 10% of that money has reached renters and landlords. It's slowed from the federal government to states and counties and cities. There are over 500 different State and City programs and procedures. Some are doing a good job. They've gotten more than half the first round of money out the door. Others are having issues and have provided less than 5% of the monies available.”States, Cities Asked to Implement MoratoriumsNow, there's a call for moratoriums at the state, city, and local court levels. (3) The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Marcia Fudge, the Secretary of the Treasury, Janet Yellen, and Attorney General, Justice Merrick Garland sent a letter to state and local governments about the eviction moratorium. They say they are working together and with other agencies to “make rental assistance available to households in need.” And they are asking for help in several ways. They want state and local governments to:1 - Enact eviction moratoriums for the rest of the health emergency.2 - Encourage local courts to make it a requirement that landlords apply for Emergency Rental Assistance before they begin eviction proceedings.3 - Prevent eviction proceedings to continue while the ERAs are being considered.4 - Use ERA and other emergency funding to pay for tenant legal representation and eviction-diversion strategies.5 - Help tenants through this whole process.California has already extended its moratorium. According to the Rental Housing Journal, some judges are “slow-walking” eviction cases, while this situation plays out.In a perfect world, rental relief funds would be coming through at a much faster pace, and both tenants and landlords would be getting relief, right now. Evictions are never something a landlord wants to do. But the moratorium strategy is not working -- for landlords. Something else needs to be done to address the issue of back-rent, and continued lack of rent payments from some tenants.It's Time for a New Rent Relief StrategyPresident of the California Rental Association, Christine Kevane LaMarca, feels that legislators are not recognizing the financial burden that's crushing some housing providers. In reference to the extension of California's eviction moratorium, she told the Rental Housing Journal: “The state continues to extend the eviction moratorium with no distinction between residents who cannot afford to pay due to the pandemic and residents who can afford to pay their rent but are using the moratorium to violate their rental agreements.” (4)These moratoriums have been going on for close to a year-and-a-half. President of the National Apartment Association, Bob Pinnegar, told the Journal: “The government must move past failed policies and begin to seriously address the nation's debt tsunami, which is crippling both renters and housing providers alike.”For many landlords, this isn't a problem. They have tenants that are paying rents, especially those with single-family rentals. But for those who are, something needs to be done to make them whole.If you'd like to read more about this, check for links in the show notes at newsforinvestors.comAnd please remember to hit the subscribe button, and leave a review!You can also join RealWealth for free at newsforinvestors.com.

Imagine sheltering in place during the start of the coronavirus pandemic without having a home to shelter in. Sadly, more than 580,000 individuals in the United States experienced homelessness in 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the fourth consecutive annual increase in the number of people experiencing homelessness. In an effort to help those experiencing homelessness during the pandemic, city officials acted quickly to help people find temporary shelter. Now, without lockdown restrictions in place, cities are facing new challenges as they move people from temporary shelters like hotels to group shelters and as eviction moratoriums lift.The pandemic has changed the way cities tackle almost every issue, and Bloomberg Associates, the pro-bono consulting arm of Bloomberg Philanthropies, works side-by-side with cities around the world to address homelessness.Earlier this summer, Tamiru Mammo and Linda Gibbs, who work on Bloomberg Associates' social services team, co-authored a book entitled How Ten Global Cities Take on Homelessness: Innovations That Workalongside Jay Bainbridge and Muzzy Rosenblatt, their colleagues from the City of New York during the Bloomberg administration.The book provides a deep-dive into how ten cities – Bogotá, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Houston, Nashville, New York City, Baltimore, Edmonton, Paris, and Athens - have addressed street homelessness.On this episode, Tamiru Mammo and Jay Bainbridge join the podcast to discuss what stands out about how these cities are tackling homelessness, what successful solutions look like, and what the new normal looks like in terms of tackling this issue going forward.

In cities across our nation, homelessness is an ongoing problem. According to the 2020 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) to Congress, completed by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development prior to COVID, roughly 580,000 people were experiencing homelessness in the United States on a single night in 2020.  This represented the fourth consecutive year in which homelessness increased nationwide. The severity of this problem has led to high profile conflicts on how to address the crisis. In April of this year, US federal judge David O. Carter issued a 110 page order necessitating the city and county of Los Angeles to find shelter for all unhoused residents of Skid Row, as well as requiring an audit of any spending related to the homeless.  Alleging that Judge Carter's ruling is a violation of the separation of powers, the city and county appealed the matter to the 9th Circuit, who heard arguments this month. So, how do we combat homelessness? And is enough being done by city officials? On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by professor Gary Blasi, from UCLA School of Law and Breanne Schuster, staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington, as they discuss the legal issues surrounding homelessness, separation of powers, current legislation, and what is being done to combat this nationwide problem.
