The COVID-19 economic policy response helped prevent dire outcomes for renters and homeowners with mortgages during the pandemic. How did the stars align to make forbearance an especially effective policy? What did the pandemic reveal about gaps in the rental assistance safety net? To discuss these questions and more on housing policy during COVID-19, host David Wessel is joined by Laurie S. Goodman, vice president of housing finance policy at the Urban Institute, and Paul Willen, senior economist and policy advisor for research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
