This essay on the recent housing crisis focuses on the efficacy of using lessons learned at the local level to inform federal policy-making. The author examines the extent to which local information was utilized during the buildup to the crisis, as well as during the eventual response. The article focuses on a particular local response in New Haven, CT, the role of HUD-certified counselors, and a joint project led by the Opportunity Funding Corporation and the Yale School of Management.
