Public housing faces staggering maintenance backlogs made even more serious because of climate change. The climate hazards that public housing must prepare for in the future are an indicator of what multi-family buildings, public and private, also face. This panel explores the current climate resilience of public housing; the planning, programs, funding, and infrastructure needed to protect public housing from the effects of climate change; and how multi-family buildings in our region, especially aging ones, must prioritize the resiliency needed in a hotter, wetter, and more storm-intensive future.
