Shared Equity Homeownership Basics and Beyond

This introductory level course is for practitioners, policy makers, funders, community members and anyone 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, and make a dent in their affordable housing needs. This four session, two-part course will help participants make the case for shared equity homeownership (SEH) models in their local context, as well as consider critical issues like racial equity and inclusion in housing work in general. The course is divided into two parts to allow participants to customize their experience – Part One will focus on making the case and critical partnerships and policy needs for success, while Part Two will dig deeper into implementation models and provide an overview of essential elements of program design. Participants may register for either or both parts.
