Agencies hosting Ga. housing, transportation forum

The Associated PressJuly 15, 2014 

— Two federal agencies are partnering to host a forum in Atlanta on the costs of housing and affordability.

Organizers say the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Transportation are hosting a forum Wednesday at the Loudermilk Center.

Officials say the forum is aimed at raising awareness of the federal Location Affordability Portal, a data source on housing and transportation costs that consumers can use to make decisions on where to live and work.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority CEO Keith Parker are also expected to speak at the forum.
