CDFA Financing Pre-Conference Workshop

Course Overview

Held in conjunction with the Drive | Lead | Succeed Conference

The impact of housing on economic development efforts is a critical issue in many communities. By addressing complex housing challenges and opportunities, a city can create valuable assets while also encouraging economic development and social equity. From urban centers, suburban enclaves and rural cities, communities across the country have numerous tools available to support the development of affordable, market rate, mixed-income and mixed-use housing. The Intro Housing Finance Course will explore how the development finance toolbox can be utilized to support a myriad of housing challenges and opportunities as well as how development finance agencies can become key partners in housing development in their community.
