This session will explore three Affordable ADU Prototypes being developed by non-profits and public agencies to address affordable housing issues, with examples from Portland and Los Angeles. The panel will review their ongoing work to create socially responsible policies, financing tools and designs that overcome the challenge of creating dispersed, small-scale, affordable homes. And they will discuss how ADU developments may benefit both renters and homeowners while mitigating the displacement of low-income communities of color.
