Suggested Audience(s): Government Practitioners and Policy Makers
Dates: May 22, May 29, June 5, June 12
This intermediate level course is for those administering lasting affordable homeownership programs, including policy makers and municipal program staff as well as for nonprofit program staff that partner or contract with municipalities. More and more municipalities are incentivizing or requiring lasting affordability in their housing programs, including inclusionary housing programs. This session focuses on the program design and implementation considerations that are unique to publicly administered or funded programs. With an emphasis on transparency, compliance, enforcement and partnerships, this session highlights best practices (and tough lessons learned) from a variety of municipal programs. The ideal participant is either just developing a permanently affordable homeownership program or is in the process of evaluating and improving an existing program. That said, there is learning here for everyone.
