  • Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.
  • Attendance at the event will be capped and no tickets will be sold at the door.

Why This Matters

What You'll Learn: 

  • How has COVID-19 impacted the Mayor's pipeline for additional housing, and what incentives have been given by public officials to continue building additional housing?
  • As mixed-income comes into the fray, how are developers and public officials making decisions as to how much is market-rate, and how much is affordable?
  • Where is new affordable housing being built in the District and beyond? How are developers de-stigmatizing the nature of affordable housing in places like Alexandria, Bethesda, etc?
  • Easing out of eviction moratoriums: How are developers and landlords making the decisions of when to ask residents for rent?
  • Repurposing or building new: The pros and cons of redeveloping for affordability
     

How You'll Do More Business:  Affordable Housing, and the housing crisis, impacts each and every city in the United States and developers, community organizers, and politicians must work together to ensure that housing is available to all residents. But while these are easy statements to make - they are harder to execute. Where to build, and how to finance the projects? Where do residents in need of affordable housing want to live so they can be close to loved ones, or job opportunities? And how can we provide housing that will help take on the region's growing homelessness crisis? Learn where to invest in much-needed affordable housing throughout the DMV. 

 

Who You'll Meet: The region's top affordable housing owners and developers, investors and advocates.
