The 2010 midterm elections have ushered in a new congress that will impact the policies
at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and potentially change how
affordable housing properties are financed. Although the liquidity crunch created
by the global economic crisis continues to affect our industry, there are signs
of significant improvement for financing and preserving housing properties. Led
by industry experts, this conference will convene some of the most experienced developers,
financiers, technical experts, policy makers, and advocates who are redefining affordable
housing and community development.
The speakers will address today’s issues head on providing candid insights, observations,
and real-life examples against the backdrop on an evolving economy, growing federal
and state deficits, and the changing of the guard in congress.
Topics covered throughout this conference will encompass some of the most important
opportunities and obstacles associated with developing and preserving affordable
housing in 2011 and beyond, including;
- Leveraging federal programs with private debt and equity,
- Opportunities and challenges for affordable housing preservation,
- Updates on industry initiatives to expand the tax credit investor market,
- New policy initiatives on Capitol Hill and at HUD,
- Utilizing green technologies to preserve affordable housing, and
- Assessing improving equity and dept markets.
- We’ll also kick the conference off with an optional preservation primer session.
