Each spring, Housing California's Annual Conference brings together advocates, builders, lenders, consumers, lawmakers, and other leaders in the affordable home and homelessness community. With more than 75 workshops and pre-conference institutes, over 50 exhibitors, and attendance of over 1,100, the conference has become the nation’s largest statewide conference of its kind.
As part of the stellar lineup at this conference, TransForm's own Ann Cheng, GreenTRIP Program Director, will be presenting on this panel:
"Emerging Research on Reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Car Use in Location Efficient Affordable Homes Policy and the Law Intermediate"
Tuesday April 28
10 - 11:30 a.m.
This workshop will share new research projects that show how housing that is affordable to lowerincome households located in places that provide access to jobs and services along with transit, biking, and walking options can lower household car use and car ownership and, as a result, reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and greenhouse gas emissions. State agency staff will join researchers to discuss how these findings can inform the state's Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program and discuss policy questions and future research goals. Moderator: James Pappas, California Housing Partnership Corporation Panelists: Greg Newmark, Center for Neighborhood Technology; Ann Cheng, TransForm; Susan Handy, UC Davis; Linda Wheaton, California Department of Housing and Community Development; Annalisa Schilla, Ph.D., California Air Resources Board
