At What Price? The Hidden Costs of Housing in Texas
February 6-8, 2020 | Waco, Texas

Texas communities are among the fastest-growing in the U.S. Housing a rapidly growing population brings many challenges. While direct housing costs are increasing in both the rental and sale market, indirect costs, such as property taxes, can make it hard for homeowners to stay in their homes. The cost of housing is interconnected with tax laws, land use, transportation plans, schools, health, economic growth, and job creation.  This conference will explore these aspects as well as past and present policies that impact both the social, equitable and financial fabrics of our communities.
