US cities are facing the joint challenge of the climate crisis and the lack of housing that is affordable and healthy. In her new book, Gray to Green Communities, affordable-housing expert Dana Bourland argues that we need to move away from a gray housing model to a green model that considers the health and well-being of residents, their communities, and the planet.

Before joining The JPB Foundation, Bourland was Vice President of Green Initiatives for Enterprise Community Partners, leading this national organization's award-winning Green Communities program, including the creation of Green Communities Criteria, Green Communities Offset Fund, and Multifamily Retrofit Program.

Moderated by Jon Ford, director of strategic initiatives for Vitalyst Health Foundation.
