The Amazon Effect: Amazon HQ2’s Effect on Affordable Housing
In late 2018, Amazon announced that Northern Virginia would be the home to Amazon’s second headquarters. Since early 2021, Amazon has emerged as a key player in the affordable housing industry in the region, and has already provided nearly $1 billion in loans and grants to dozens of well-known private developers and nonprofits, bridging financing gaps by providing additional capital and garnering frequent and positive media attention and praise from local governments. The panel will examine the role megacorporations like Amazon should play in affordable housing finance and Big Tech philanthropy around housing affordability generally as it relates to the future of public sector programs in the form of tax credits, grant programs, housing choice vouchers, and housing trust funds.
