Shared Equity Homeownership Basics and Beyond

Suggested Audiences: New practitioners, policy makers, funders and other partners or stakeholders
4-part training, 90-minute sessions
Thursdays, June 3, 10, 17 & 24 at 2-3:30pm ET/ 11-12:30pm PT

What is shared equity homeownership and how is it different from other affordable house opportunities? This introductory level course for policy makers, funders, community members and practitioners, can answer that question for people interested in learning more about how to make affordable homeownership opportunities last for generations. More and more, communities are seeking policies that do more with less, balance individual benefits with community benefits, impact the racial homeownership gap, and make a dent in their affordable housing needs. This four-session course will help participants make the case for shared equity homeownership (SEH) in their local context, consider critical issues like racial equity and inclusion, identify the most common SEH models, and understand the local housing ecosystem necessary for success.

While this course may be of interest to new practitioners, it is designed to be accessible to non-housing professionals as an introduction to the broad concept of shared equity homeownership. Course sessions will include presentation, small group discussion and time for focused question and answer. We will cite studies and provide resources for participants to learn more in independent follow-up.

Course Agenda:

  • Thursday, June 3rd: Making the Case for SEH
  • Thursday, June 10th: SEH Program Models
  • Thursday, June 17th: Common SEH Program Elements
  • Thursday, June 24: Putting it All Together: Partnerships & Policies for Scale
