Rent Stabilization: Policy Choices and Impacts

Rent-regulation policies vary widely across the United States. What do we know about their effects on rental markets, tenants, and property owners? Do differences in the policies’ design matter? Urban Land Institute Minnesota and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis are partnering with experts from across the housing sector to present a four-part, virtual event series featuring research-based, evidence-driven conversation on rent regulation. We invite you to join us as we discuss these important questions.

Our kickoff session will first provide an overview of rent-stabilization policies that are in place around the nation. Panelists will then join our keynote speaker for a moderated conversation about what economic research reveals about how different design features of rent-stabilization policies impact renters and rental-housing markets.

Keynote speaker:
Sophie House, Director of Law and Policy, Housing Solutions Lab, Furman Center, New York University
