In this talk, I will provide some thoughts on the ways in which the covid-19 has publicly confirmed a series of longstanding shortcomings in the U.S. housing and social welfare system. More than 18 months into the pandemic, we understand that housing can serve as an important and essential public health intervention, however, we also see the reproduction and reinforcement of a highly uneven state and local geography of housing stability and housing support. I provide insight from my own research on the relationship between housing instability, covid spread, and geographies of disadvantage, and share thoughts about how we might leverage this knowledge to envision a more equitable housing recovery.
