Stoneleigh Fellow Vincent Reina was featured by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) for hosting a research panel organized by HUD on institutional investors in the housing market.
On December 6, 2022, HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) held a Quarterly Update event on institutional investors in housing. Researchers and community practitioners discussed institutional investors’ growing role in the housing market, the effects of this growth, and actions to combat some of the negative effects of these investments, particularly on renters and prospective buyers of single-family homes. After Solomon Greene, PD&R’s principal deputy assistant secretary, opened the event, HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge summarized institutional investors’ role in the housing market and highlighted some recent efforts by the Biden administration to address this issue. The event featured two panels: a research panel moderated by Vincent Reina, senior policy advisor for Housing and Urban Policy at the White House Domestic Policy Council, and a community action panel moderated by Sarah Brundage, senior advisor for housing supply and infrastructure in HUD’s Office of the Secretary.
