This chapter suggests long-term structural and institutional measures that encompass education, employment, and immigration reform, all designed to stabilize and the Latino/a community and facilitate its access to fair and equal housing opportunity. These systemic changes aim to improve incomes and security for Latino/a families, translating into greater purchasing and rental power. Many of these structural changes have been urged for decades as anti-poverty measures without success, but they are vital to ensure Latino/a housing does not continue to fall short of the American dream.
