Homeownership has been found to be associated with a variety of financial and social benefits, but only if owning is sustained over time. With the collapse of the housing bubble and the onset of the Great Recession, millions of households have lost their homes to foreclosure. The papers in this session examine the factors associated with sustaining homeownership during this troubled period with a particular focus on low-income and minority households that have been the focus of efforts to expand homeownership opportunties.
