In Connecticut, Housing is a Double-Edged Sword

Dec 22, 2015

Earlier this month, the Partnership for Strong Communities released its annual report on housing access and affordability in Connecticut. This hour, we find out what it tells us about local housing conditions -- including efforts to end homelessness and increase affordable housing supply across the state. 

We also sit down with WNPR contributor Susan Campbell to see how local zoning regulations are impacting where and how people live in Connecticut.

And later: ‘tis the season for charitable giving. We learn how ProPublica’s Nonprofit Explorer tool is helping people vet nonprofits before they donate.

GUESTS:

  • Kathryn Shafer - Policy Analyst with the Partnership for Strong Communities
  • Susan Campbell - Writer and Hartford Courant columnist
  • Jack Dougherty - Associate Professor of Educational Studies at Trinity College
  • Sisi Wei - News Applications Developer at ProPublica
