In this special issue of On Common Ground, we take a deeper dive into how homeownership will evolve post-pandemic; what nonprofits and local governments are doing to help preserve homeownership; and, what a unique public-private partnership is doing to create resources for those experiencing housing insecurity. We also use this special issue to look at how local governments are re-tooling public spaces to accommodate social distancing, as well as spotlight how businesses are adapting to the new landscape.
